HIGH VISITOR NUMBERS AT MUSEO PICASSO MÁLAGA FOR THE RETROSPECTIVE 'JOAQUÍN TORRES-GARCÍA: THE ARCADIAN MODERN'

02/09/2017

A total of 72,039 people visited the retrospective of Uruguayan artist Joaquín Torres-García at Museo Picasso Malaga. The exhibition showed artworks ranging from his earliest works in late 19th-century Barcelona to his final works produced in Montevideo in the 1940s.

Torres-García was one of the most complex artists of the first half of the 20th century. He opened up new pathways for modern art practice and had a radically individual style that defies classification. Exactly 72,039 people visited the Malaga museum to discover more about his significant body of work, which combined the theories of European avant-garde movements with the art forms of Pre-Columbian cultures. He called this Constructive Universalism. Over the past five months, MPM has organized seminars, talks, visits and workshops, and even a Toy Factory, in recognition of Torres-Garcia’s work as a thinker and teacher.
