DIALOGUES WITH PICASSO. COLLECTION 2020-2023

Museo Picasso Málaga’s priority objective is to promote the diverse and universal work of Picasso. For this reason, today, Monday 1st June, the digital presentation of “Dialogues with Picasso. Collection 2020-2023” goes out to the international cultural and social community that has been created around the institution. This new museographic layout of the collection is the result of the joint endeavours of Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte (FABA) and MPM’s own artistic team.

This is the sixth transformation of the exhibition rooms of the Palacio de Buenavista since the museum first opened in 2003. There are currently 120 works on display, with highlights such as the cubist sculpture Glass of Absinthe (1914), or the return of the painting Susanna and the Elders (1955), and even a tapestry based on the Demoiselles d’Avignon. Digital and educational material are also particularly important features. This is all thanks to the negotiations that took place to ratify the agreement between the Consejería de Cultura y Patrimonio de la Junta de Andalucía and FABA, which has been renewed for three more years, during which time a total of 162 works by Picasso will be added to the 233 works MPM holds in its own collection.

The new layout of the permanent collection is the result of the combined efforts of the professional staff of Museo Picasso Málaga and FABA, and the collaboration of guest associate curator Pepe Karmel, Associate Professor of Art History at the University of New York.
