Opened in 2015 as the first “pop up” of the famous Parisian Centre Pompidou to open outside of France, the Málaga Centre Pompidou was set up as a pilot for a 5 year time period. The pilot in Málaga proved to be so successful that it has been renewed until 2025. The experiment also spawned other outposts, with a Centre Pompidou x West Bund Museum Project inaugurated in Shanghai in 2019, and another one scheduled to open with a full collection in Brussels in 2023.
The museum is housed in a large, multi-color glass cube on the waterfront on Muelle Uno (dock one) next to the Port of Málaga. Its permanent collection includes over 80 works by major artists such as Picasso, Miró, Bacon, Magritte, Frida Khalo and Giacometti. The museum will also feature 2-3 temporary exhibitions that will be on display from 3 to 6 months or longer. The exhibitions will be curated by the Musée National d’Art Moderne and draw from various segments of the collection, such as photography, design, architecture, video and more.
On March 12, 2020 the museum launched the exhibition “From Miró to Barceló: A Century of Spanish Art” that will be on display until November 1, 2021.
