MPM closes the exhibitions Dennis Hopper. On the Road and Pablo Picasso. Family Album, which were seen by over 108,000 visitors
There was a great deal of interest in both shows among the museum’s public, who responded to the idea with a total of 103,384 visitors to the first exhibition and 75,876 to the second, making a grand total of 108,570 admissions, as the two shows coincided for several months.
Photography, art, film and music all came together for Dennis Hopper. On the Road. Like the life of the legendary actor and director of Easy Rider himself, it was an exhibition in which boundaries appeared not to exist. From 29th April to 29th September 2013, MPM offered the 103,384 visitors who attended the chance to make a special journey back to the Sixties. It was an intense period that is essential in order to understand some of the key cultural issues in the USA during the latter half of the 20th century, as seen through the lens of this extreme, independent and rebellious artist.
A very different exhibition took place from 24th June to 6th October on the ground floor of Museo Picasso Málaga. Pablo Picasso. Family Album drew in 75,876 visitors to take a look at the Malaga-born artist&rsquo";“s close family circle and friends. The pictures were complemented by a collection of photographs from the archives of Picasso&rsquo”;"s family, many of them on display for the first time. This is the second of three exhibitions held to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the museum in 2013. MPM is currently preparing its new exhibitions.
One of them is a Spanish premier: Hilma af Klint. Pioneer of Abstract, which will open on 21st October. The other, which runs from 26th October, is Eleven Invited Works, an exceptional display of works from the top Paris museums, in the rooms housing the MPM permanent collection, which will highlight the historical value of the museum&rsquo";"s own holdings.
