Activities for children, families and adults

A Day with Bacon, Freud and the School of Lndon

Saturday 16 Sept. 2017

Activities in Spanish

Coinciding with the closure of Bacon, Freud and the School of London, Museo Picasso Málaga organized a day for all audiences to approach the work of the artists in the exhibition, from different perspectives. With the exception of summer cinema, these activities were free with the purchase of the admission ticket (which is always free for children).

PROGRAMME
La ciudad (The City). Family workshop
10.30am – 1.30pm. Garden

Whether it was in the studio, in front of buildings or on the streets London, the artists, present in this exhibition, turned their eyes towards their surroundings, finding inspiration in their nearest circle to create their works. Families participating in this workshop created personal three-dimensional landscapes using different types of paper, cardboard, glues and scissors.

Paisaje exterior (Outdoor landscape). Collective work
10.30am – 1.30pm. Plaza de la Higuera

On a giant canvas and with the help of a museum educator, participants explored color and texture that can be obtained through painting. A sketched drawing of the Fig tree was the starting point for this group collaboration.

Retratos transparentes (Transparent portraits). Family workshop
10.30am – 1.30pm. Garden

With the help of an educator from the Museum and using special markers, parents drew an outline of their children on an acetate. Then, together, they transformed it and give them color and new shapes.

Guided tour of the exhibition. For adult audiences in Spanish
1pm. Limited space

A Museum educator guided this tour through a selection of works in the exhibition. Registration at the ticket desk starting one hour before the beginning of the tour. 

Kitaj... In the Picture. Screening of the documentary
10am-7pm. Projection Room

This documentary is an intimate portrait of this artist, directed by Jake Auerbach in 1995. The film transports us from the early years of baseball and girls in upstate New York, to his years as a merchant seaman, through post war Vienna to London, where he placed himself in the centre of 'The School of London' with friends David Hockney, Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff and Lucian Freud.

Summer Cinema: Lucian Freud
Guided tour (9pm) and screening in the garden (10pm)

The day ended with the last of the three film sessions scheduled this summer at MPM, this time dedicated to the figure of Lucian Freud. The entre activity required prior reservation. More information>
