Born in Malaga on 25 October 1881 and died in the French town of Mougins on 8 April 1973, Pablo Ruiz Picasso is one of the most famous painters in the history of Western art. His expressive, free and multiform language continues to influence contemporary art and thought.

Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the artist’s death, the city of Malaga is celebrating a great tribute to Picasso.

It is a major international event revolving around some 50 exhibitions, the two main ones being Picasso: matter and body, and The echo of Picasso.

The bulk of the exhibitions will take place in Spain and France, although the United States will also host a significant number. Other countries where Picasso’s work will be exhibited include Germany, Switzerland, the Principality of Monaco, Romania and Belgium.

In the city of Malaga, a multitude of activities have been organised, ranging from temporary exhibitions, conferences, concerts, leisure activities, publications and tourist activities.

Each exhibition will allow visitors to approach the artist in a different and novel way. Exhibitions that deal with Picasso’s approach to undisputed masters such as Goya or Velázquez, but also to his contemporaries; tours to understand the different stages of his work, marked by his constant research into artistic language or projects focused on an updated reading of his work.
