Museo Picasso Málaga
An Age of Change and Discovery
A group of 30 drawings and engravings produced by Pablo Picasso between 1906 and 1925, titled “Movements & Sequences”, will remain on show at the Picasso Museum in Málaga until 17 May. For this exhibition, the selected works of Málaga-born Pablo Picasso (held in the museum’s collection) have been hung alongside other contemporaries including María Blanchard, Georges Braque, Federico García Lorca, André Derain, Joan Miró, Joaquín Peinado, José Moreno Villa and Jacques Villon, as well as work by photographer Paul Strand and painter and filmmaker Hans Richter.
In an exercise closely related to anthropology, this artistic dialogue bears witness to the cultural moment in which the works were designed and produced: films, scientific objects, viewing machines, written information and a variety of documents.
