Exhibitions

From Miró to Barceló, A Century of Spanish Art
Now on  - Nov 1, 2021

If Italy was a hot spot for art during the Renaissance, then Spain was the place to be during the era of modern and contemporary art. You can't talk about Cubism, Surrealism, Figurative Art, abstraction, sculpture, cinema – or really any art movement from the 20th century onwards – without mentioning the many great Spanish artists.

Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Isabel Quintanilla, Luis Buñuel, Miquel Barceló, Marta Palau Bosch: these are all pioneers of new ways of seeing and creating, and their artistic legacies live on.

From Miró to Barceló, A Century of Spanish Art takes you on a chronological journey through 100 years of Spanish art. It celebrates a generation of artists who have kept the spirit of the avant-garde alive with extraordinary energy and originality.

A defining feature of Spanish modern art is its defiance in the face brutality, ostracism, and exile, which it captures and reflects in a repertoire of disturbing, radical, and sacrilegious forms. Though Spain's more recent artists have known peace, the trauma of history and the cultural response to it continue to reverberate in Spanish art today.

Description

Málaga is Picasso's birthplace, and the city has honored its most famous son with a stunning colorful cube on the waterfront. The daring structure outside perfectly suits the collection of modern and contemporary art inside, all from the collection of the Pompidou in Paris.

As you stroll down Málaga's charming seafront towards the port, you won't miss the translucent panels of the ultra-sleek cube (know affectionately as El Cubo). Málaga's appeal owes a lot to its beaches and tapas, but the opening of this branch of the Centre Pompidou has put it squarely on the cultural map too.

Inside, the museum boasts fantastic exhibits suitable for all ages. Featuring a range of paintings, sculptures, installations, and films, the Pompidou Málaga will leave you thoughtful and inspired - the perfect state to be in when you go to the beach for a swim or for sunset cocktails.

Insider tip

Start your day with a visit to this museum and then go for a walk on the promenade of Muelle Uno towards Málaga’s Lighthouse. Enjoy an ice cream while soaking up the views of the port and the sunny weather - temperatures can reach around 20°C during winter!
