Picasso welcomes Warhol in Málaga

Warhol exhibition in Malaga.

Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso may not seem like natural artistic partners, however the recently opened ‘Warhol.Mechanical Art’ exhibition at the Picasso Museum in Málaga brings them together to critical acclaim.

It has been argued that these two great artists were amongst the most influential of the twentieth century, with Picasso constantly reinventing himself throughout the first half of the century and Warhol inspiring others through his multi-media works throughout the second half.

The exhibition arrives in Málaga after a successful tour of Barcelona and Madrid, with additional important works displayed only here.

Warhol’s oeuvre, from his roots as a graphic designer in the 1950s to the founding of his seminal studio The Factory in New York, is exposed here and demonstrates his mastery over an astounding range of subjects and media: from paintings, sculptures, drawings, silkscreen paintings, audiovisual installations, artist books and films to record sleeves, posters, magazines, objects and photographic and audio material. His output was prodigious and made an indelible mark on the art world not only in his own lifetime, but it continues to do so to this day.

The Warhol exhibition began on 31st May and will continue until 16th September so there is plenty of time to catch it.

The Picasso Museum is just one of over thirty in Málaga, earning it the nickname of the ‘City of Museums’. The centre is now a thriving cultural hotspot, and after a concerted period of gentrification rivals popular tourist destinations like Barcelona and Madrid.

Málaga, just a 40 minute drive from Marbella, is a great spot for a change of scenery from the beaches and resorts of Marbella. As well as the museums, there is a vibrant restaurant scene, a plethora of lively bars and a great variety of shops to satisfy even the most determined shopaholic. Marbella has the best of all worlds, a wonderful shoreline and a traditional heart, yet with the thriving cultural city of Málaga on the doorstep.
