DURING EASTER 2023, THE MUSEO PICASSO MALAGA IS OPEN EVERY DAY
During Holy Week, the Museo Picasso Málaga will maintain its usual spring opening hours: Monday–Sunday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m. (ticket offices close twenty minutes before). In this way, the MPM wants to facilitate access for locals and visitors to the city during these days.
In addition to the photographic exhibition Picasso as seen by Otero, visitors will also be able to see, in the permanent galleries, the artistic career of Pablo Picasso and contemplate El pintor y la modelo (1936), a work by the artist from the collection of the Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, on loan until next July.
Advance tickets for the art gallery can be purchased on the website, www.museopicassomalaga.org. As usual, admission is free on Sundays, during the last two opening hours.
To make it easier for residents of Málaga and the many people who come to the city at Easter to visit the Museo Picasso Málaga, the museum will continue to be open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (last entry at 6.40 p.m.). Inside, visitors can view Pablo Picasso’s New Collection, a display that begins with the painter’s formative years and continues with the stylistic and thematic milestones in his career.
Until July, the collection will feature Picasso’s The Painter and the Model (1936), in exchange for the works the Museo Picasso Málaga is lending for the Picasso 1906. The Great Transformation show at the Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid is scheduled from November 14, 2023, to March 4, 2024. In this work, the artist addresses what had been one of his chief concerns: the process of artistic creation. Picasso spent the last ten years of his life exploring this theme through the figures of the painter and his model in the studio.
The MPM’s temporary exhibition galleries are currently hosting the photography exhibition Picasso as seen by Otero, featuring images that provide an insight into Pablo Picasso’s everyday life: working on his last exhibition of ceramics at Vallauris; selecting pieces for the Homage to Picasso retrospective; or playing host to friends and visitors in the company of his wife, Jacqueline Roque. They also illustrate the artist’s solitude during his creative process and show the works that surrounded him as he went about his daily life.
Workshops for children
With the collaboration of Fundación ‘la Caixa’, the Easter workshop ‘A Museum in the City’ offers children the chance to explore the MPM and its surroundings, imagining its transformation based on Pablo Picasso’s creative approach. Photography, drawing, collage, and modeling in clay are the techniques used to help participants envision a museum and a city on different scales. The workshop is aimed at children aged 4 to 11, and registration can be made at www.museopicassomalaga.org
The Museo Picasso Málaga always grants free admission to people with a recognised disability, unemployed people registered with SEPE, children aged 16 and under, students of the University of Málaga with ID, accredited teachers, and members of the ICOM. For everyone else, admission is always free on Sundays during the last two opening hours. In addition, over-65s, holders of the Euro Youth Card, and accredited students under 26 are entitled to discounts, which can be consulted at www.museopicassomalaga.org.
