From May 26, 2020, Museo Picasso Málaga will be reopening its doors every day and with the same opening hours (10.00am - 7.00pm, with the ticket office closing at 6.30pm). Visitors will be able to see the exhibition Genealogies of Art or the History of Art as Visual Art, free of charge. This show brings together over 100 works by Pablo Picasso, Constantin Brancusi, Paul Cézanne, Robert Delaunay, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Juan Gris, Wassily Kandinsky, Fernand Léger, El Lissitzky, Kazimir Malevich, Franz Marc, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Georges Braque, Paul Klee and Henry Moore, amongst other major artists. As this magnificent exhibition finally closes on May 31, the management of Museo Picasso Málaga have decided that admission should be free of charge to all visitors.

The museum recommends visitors buy their tickets in advance online, via the museum website www.museopicassomalaga.org. Also, visitor guidelines include keeping 2 metres away from other people, using the provided hand sanitizer, and wearing protective face masks.

From June 1, there will be a new museum layout for the permanent collection, with Dialogues with Picasso. Collection 2020-2023 bringing together 120 works by Picasso. By periodically refreshing and reviewing its permanent collection, Museo Picasso Málaga is in a way following in the footsteps of Picasso himself, who constantly innovated with his art throughout his life. Shown together, the MPM collection and the works on loan from Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte (FABA) complement one another, in a close artistic dialogue. This new exhibition narrative in the Palacio de Buenavista will enable visitors to gain an even deeper knowledge of Pablo Picasso’s artistic career.

Throughout the weeks of lockdown, Museo Picasso Málaga has been very busy online. In order not to interrupt the informative and educational work that is the museum's hallmark, new artistic content has been provided for people of all ages and backgrounds. The #PicassoEnCasa program offers a wide range of activities from workbooks for children so they can explore their creative side at home while learning about art, to a look back at the exhibitions, talks, concerts and recitals that have made up the recent history of the museum.
