Francis Picabia. (Preview).

MUSEE D'ART MODERNE DE LA VILLE DE PARIS

By now it's no longer audacious to turn from one Picabia, a major player in the annals of Dada, to another: the silly old artist whose late works, with their puckish anthology of reactionary, "neo" styles, once provoked outrage or embarrassment but now look like ancestral figures of post-modern hipdom. (They even launch the current Pompidou show "Cher Peintre," an anthology of new realist painting.) This retrospective, curated by Suzanne Page and Gerard Audinet (with catalogue essays by, among others, Dave Hickey), promises the whole story at last, which may end up proving that the late Picabia was more of a Dadaist than the official one. Nov. 8-Mar. 16.
