This coming October 27, 2023, will mark a special milestone in the Museum’s history, as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The 20th anniversary of the museum will coincide with the events organized for the ‘Picasso Celebration 1973-2023’, a major international event organized for the 50th anniversary of the artist’s death.

The Picasso Museum Málaga will actively participate in this programme with two exhibitions; the exhibition ‘Picasso: matter and body’, curated by Carmen Gimnez which will run from May 9 to September 10 next year and “El eco de Picasso”, curated by Eric Troncy, displayed from October 3, 2023 to March 24, 2024.

The programme “Celebration Picasso 1973-2023” is promoted by the Spanish National Commission for the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the artist’s death and the Picasso Museum in Paris, under the coordination of the bi-national commission that brings together cultural and diplomatic administrations of Spain and France.
