The Paris of Brassaï. Photographs of the City Picasso Loved showed the work of one of the most well-known European photographers of the first half of the 20th century, who had a close personal and professional relationship with Pablo Picasso. The exhibition, which was seen by over 72,500 visitors, was organized with the sponsorship of Fundación Unicaja and the special collaboration of Estate Brassaï succession, Paris; Institut Français, Seville; and Musée national Picasso-Paris. 

On 27th April, Museo Picasso Málaga will be opening the exhibition Paula Rego, with the work of one of the most original and acclaimed artists of our time. Over six decades, Rego reinvented figurative painting and the way that women are represented. Almost ninety works, ranging from large oils to her early collages, make up this retrospective organized by Tate Britain in collaboration with the Kunstmuseum Den Haag and Museo Picasso Málaga, and curated by Elena Crippa, expert in modern and contemporary British art at Tate Britain.

With this exhibition, Museo Picasso Málaga has once again undertaken to showcase 20th-century female artists, following on from shows dedicated to Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Hilma af Klint, Louise Bourgeois and the exhibition of female surrealist artists, We Are Completely Free. Organized by Tate Britain in collaboration with Kunstmuseum Den Haag and Museo Picasso Málaga, the exhibition is curated by Elena Crippa, expert in modern and contemporary British art at Tate Britain.
