Pompidou Málaga” will be staying for five years in the Cubo, a cultural centre built on the city’s habour in 2013, and altered in 2014 to host the Pop-up Pompidou.
The first “Pop-Up Pompidou” in Málaga, Andalusia, in the spring of 2015. The “Centre Pompidou Málaga” will be staying for five years in the Cubo, a cultural centre built on the city’s habour in 2013, and altered in 2014 to host the Pop-up Pompidou.
It will offer a very wide public a chance to experience the Centre Pompidou through its large and varied collection, its excellent programme, its mix of artistic disciplines and its innovative mediation programmes.
Málaga, Picasso’s native city, has made culture and museums the focus of a new era in its development. The city’s current dynamic thrust is based on the creation and establishment of top-quality cultural events and museums. Málaga possesses a wealth of cultural assets: the third largest offer in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona.
In Málaga, the Pop-Up Pompidou will provide a permanent circuit of several dozen works chosen from the Centre Pompidou’s incomparable collection, inviting audiences to a journey through the art of the 20th and 21st centuries. It will present two to three themed or monographic temporary exhibitions each year, devised by the Centre Pompidou’s curators and drawn from the various segments of the collection (including photography, design, architecture and video). The “Pompidou experience” will also take the form of multidisciplinary programmes devoted to dance, performance, the spoken word and cinema, and the aid provided by mediation set-ups, designed for younger audiences in particular.
A strategic project initiated by Centre Pompidou President Alain Seban, Pop-up Pompidous are designed to display the Centre Pompidou collection, and more broadly, to create or consolidate new networks abroad, and attract new audiences in France and throughout the world.
