A Day with Torres-García

Saturday 4 Feb. 2017

Activities in Spanish

To coincide with the closure of the exhibition Joaquín Torres-García: The Arcadian Modern, Museo Picasso Málaga devoted a whole morning to getting to know about the Uruguayan artist, whose work defies classification or stereotypes. The activities for families and adults offered different approaches to the artist’s work.

Modular toys
Bookstore space. 10 am to 2 pm

Cork, ropes and POSCA markers served families to build figures and turn them into modular toys. Shapes could be exchanged as they will be joined with metal binders. No prior registration required.

Constructive murals
Gallery 12. From 10 am to 2 pm

Families could build a collective mural by designing pictograms on magnetic panels which will be arranged on metal structures. No prior registration required.

Travel with us
Gallery XII. From 10 am to 2 pm

Children and parents picked up postcards which took them on a “trip” through the temporary exhibition looking for answers to the questions written on them. At the end of their trip they returned to gallery XII to design an illustration for the front of the postcard. No prior registration required.
