MORE than 1,000 people visited the newly-opened Mijas Contemporary Art Centre in its first weekend.

Its inaugural exhibition, Picasso, friends and contemporaries, includes a total 86 works of art provided by the Medina Foundation Remidios.

As well as work by Picasso, it also includes pieces by Salvador Dali, Joan Miro, George Braque, and Japanese artist Tsauguharu Foujita.

The exhibition is split into three rooms, the first of which contains 43 pieces of pottery made by Picasso. It is considered the second most important collection of Picasso ceramics in the world.

The other two rooms, which house Picasso work alongside that of other artists, will be changed every three months and can host up to 550 pieces of art.

The museum is open from 10am until 6pm every day. Entry is €3.
