Centre Pompidou-Málaga12 Mar 2020 - 28 Feb 2022
The event is over
The Centre Pompidou Málaga, in association with a renewed 5-year partnership with the Centre Pompidou, will unveil its latest permanent exhibition tour on March 12th. Entitled "From Miró to Barceló. A Century of Spanish Art" and running until February 28th 2022, this outstanding presentation of the collection will feature throughout the Centre and will immerse visitors in almost a hundred years of Spanish art history.
Cubism, surrealism, figuration and abstraction, painting, sculpture, film and video; there is not a single period or field in the 20th and 21st century art history that has not been dominated by Spanish artists. Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí or Luis Buñuel were the pioneers of new ways of seeing and creating that continue to influence art today.
This chronological pathway through a century of Spanish art demonstrates the extraordinary energy with which the current generation of artists keeps the spirit of the avant-gardists alive. Their predecessors witnessed major events in history, including exile in Paris, war and ostracism, which gave birth to moving, radical and even sacrilegious images.
Their freedom restored, their successors Miquel Barceló, Cristina Iglesias and La Ribot among others, continue to surprise us today by inventing new forms of painting, sculpture and space that breathe new life into the materials, rituals and myths of Spanish art.
