COMBO JAZZ May - June 2011 After last Autumn&rsquo";“s Solo Jazz cycle, the Museo Picasso Málaga once again looks at the genre in a new programme that showcases the combo format. The term &ldquo”;“combo&rdquo”;", which is short for combination, was used to describe the old dance orchestras in the 1930s, although when bebop burst upon the scene in the 1940s, it was applied to small ensembles of three or four musicians that used the formula of one soloist with a rhythmic section.
The four bands in this new MPM programme, which has been coordinated by Salvador Catalán, redefine and expand upon the old concept of the small ensemble, in a contemporary art space where the link between tradition and progress takes up different directions and approaches. From consolidated names whose works are prominent among the jazz essentials, to emerging groups that are making themselves a name in the avant-garde, as well as transversal options that are hard to restrict to the narrow confines of a label… Analysis and emotion come together for an unmissable event on the jazz calendar.

SEMINARS AT THE PICASSO SUCCESS AND FAILURE OF 80S PAINTING April - May 2011 To coincide with the exhibition Kippenberger Meets Picasso, and in order to reflect on the circumstances in which art was practiced in the 1980s, the Museo Picasso Málaga is organizing this seminar to find out what went on at that time, based on the personal account of some of the protagonists. Three decades later, and in a situation not ideally suited to risk-taking, we ask how the 80s changed the way that we understand painting today.
Coordinated by arts agent Pedro Pizarro, the three consecutive sessions will provide an opportunity to listen to analysis by art critics, gallerists, arts agents and artists, who will assess what the period meant for Spanish art and how it succeeded, or failed, to achieve its &ldquo";“normalization&rdquo”;" on the international art scene.
