Pablo Picasso and Carlos Luna have little to do with each other. Sure, Spanish was a first language for both of them; Picasso half-invented Cubism, and Luna has at least a passing interest in the form. They were born in different centuries, but the work of both seems to belong to the 20th and beyond. Their works are earthy, too, and unsettlingly ambiguous.
See the similarities side-by-side as part of The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdales Picasso/Luna exhibition. A big selection of Picassos ceramics will be displayed alongside various paintings from Luna. The exhibition runs through February 23 at MOAFL (One E. Las Olas, Fort Lauderdale). Admission is free for students, and $10 for common folk. Visit moafl.org.
