The UCCA Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing will display masterpieces by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) from June 15 to Sept. 1.

The exhibition "Picasso -- Birth of a Genius" will showcase 103 works selected from the collection of the Musee National Picasso-Paris, offering a comprehensive overview of the first three decades of Picasso's artistic career.

The selection of works, including paintings, sculptures and works on paper, tells the story of the creative formation and evolution of the daring, original and prolific talent in the history of modern art.

For the Musee National Picasso-Paris, the exhibition marks the most substantive presentation of its collection in China to date.

To honor Picasso's frequent collaborations with musicians and performers, UCCA will host an exhibition-themed art festival, including performances, screenings and lectures to explore the artist's unique contribution on June 22, July 20 and Aug. 24.

In addition, it will organize a symposium on "Picasso in China" to discuss Picasso's influence on both the Chinese and international art worlds on June 15.
