MUSEO PICASSO MÁLAGA SAYS FAREWELL TO OLGA PICASSO AFTER RECEIVING 85,000 VISITORS
A total of 85.219 people visited Museo Picasso Málaga to see the Olga Picasso exhibition, which showcased Picasso’s first wife, Olga Khokhlova and her story, and put into perspective the creation of some of Picasso’s greatest works. After being shown at Museo Picasso Málaga, Olga Picasso will travel to Madrid to be seen at CaixaForum Madrid as from 19th June.
Museo Picasso Málaga is now preparing the opening on 17th June of its new exhibition, Bruce Nauman. Rooms, bodies, words. This is the first large-scale exhibition in Spain of Bruce Nauman’s work in 25 years.
Olga Picasso offers a new interpretation that contradicts some of the negative official versions regarding the role she played both in the artist’s life and in the history of art. The exhibition is the result of intense research into the archives of Olga Khokhlova, the grandmother of Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, who is one of the curators of the exhibition and a key figure in the creation and day-to-day life of Museo Picasso Málaga. The exhibition has been organized in collaboration with Musée national Picasso-Paris and Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el arte. After Moscow and Málaga, it will be seen in Madrid.
Following the closing of this exhibition, MPM is now finalizing preparations for its next exhibition, Bruce Nauman. Rooms, bodies, words. With its abundant references to music, dance, literature and philosophy, Bruce Nauman’s work generates in the viewer the kind of responses that are associated with provocation, conflict and tension, via the repetition of language and form. The exhibition brings together around one hundred works, ranging from architectural structures, sculptures, installations and neon lights, to videos, drawings, silk-screening and photography, amongst others.
