Can Picasso mean Picasso's artworks?
Do the first two lines of the following paragraph mean that Bonami does not want to get away from painting at all costs but as the first step he just wants to get away from the predominant view towards art that is often thought to be a painting instead of anything else like a sculpture, piece of music, installation, and the like?
2. Does "Picasso" mean "Picasso's artworks"? For example does "look at any Picasso" at the end of the paragraph mean "look at any Picasso's artworks"?
As such Bonami seems, in fact, to be headed somewhere else entirely: not by any means away from painting at all costs, but certainly away, first, from its enshrinement as a precooked encounter for the viewer:
‘People come into a contemporary art museum and ask, “Where’s the Picasso?” [. . .] We should respond, “Here you won’t find a Picasso, but you will have an experience that will change the way you look at any Picasso”’
