Centre Pompidou Malaga
The first "provisional Centre Pompidou" was set up in the spring of 2015 in the city of Malaga, in Andalusia.
The "Centre Pompidou Malaga" was established for a period of five years in the Cubo, a building with a cultural vocation that was erected in 2013 and modified in 2014 in order to host the Centre Pompidou, overlooking the city's marina.
It invites the largest possible public to experience the Centre Pompidou through the wealth of its collection, the excellence of its programme, its intersecting artistic disciplines and the innovation of its mediation programmes.
The Centre Pompidou Malaga opened its doors on 28 March 2015 in the presence of the President of the Spanish government, Mariano Rajoy, and the French Minister for Culture and Communication, Fleur Pellerin.
Inspired by the success of this venture, the partnership signed with the city of Malaga was renewed in April for another 5 years, until March 2025.
The provisional Centre Pompidou in Malaga provides a permanent tour with a surface area of 1,800 m2, several tens of works chosen from the Centre Pompidou's incomparable collection, inviting the public on a journey through the art of the 20th and 21st centuries. It presents two or three themed or monographic temporary exhibitions each year, designed by the curators of the Centre Pompidou and built up from the different segments of the collection (photography, design, architecture, and video).
The 1st tour, from March 2015 to October 2017, presented "The Collection" based on five themes: metamorphoses, the body fragmented, the body politic, self-portraits, and the man with no face.
The 2nd, presented from December 2017 to January 2020, illustrated "Modern Utopias".
The 3rd, from March 2020 to November 2021, presents "From Miro to Barcelo, a century of Spanish art".
This experience can be lived out in the course of multi-disciplinary programmes devoted to dance, performance art, the spoken word, cinema, and through mediation tools, particularly those for a young public.
