the Pompidou Centre Malaga

Opened on 28 March 2015, the Pop-Up Pompidou is housed in El Cubo, a cuboid glass structure in Malaga port, and buildings next to it. It received 76 thousand visitors in the first three months.

The 6000m2 centre has 80 works, with two or three annual exhibitions lasting 3-6 months during the next five years.

Divided into seven sections: metamorphoses, the body in pieces, the political body, self-portraits, man without a face, the workshop of Brancusi, and a final section dedicated to the architecture of the first Pompidou Centre, in Paris.

works of art

Works in the centre's collection will include 20th century masterpieces such as The frame (self-portrait) by Frida Kahlo, The flowered hat by Picasso, a self-portrait by Francis Bacon, The rape by René Magritte and Women in an interior by Léger, as well as contemporary works by French-Tunisian artist Kader Attia and French conceptual artist Sophie Calle. The Pompidou Malaga will follow the example of the Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris, with works from 1905 to present day, and is the only branch of the museum outside France.

From Miró to Barceló, A Century of Spanish Art - until 01 Nov, 2021
f 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.


Dar la cara. El retrato incierto - until Apr 11, 2021
This exhibition of photography and video between 1972-2011 focuses on how artists continually reinvented the portrait genre over 50 years, as an instrument of social representation. The works presented question the public construction of individual identity through image, touching upon issues like the human being in the era of social networks and facial recognition software.

The idea of "dar la cara", shared by the different practices of the 26 artists gathered here, leads to a space of freedom between the self and the other, or the self as another.
