The selection will fill 6,000 square metres and is going to be made over a three month period under the supervision of Jose María Luna, the director of the ‘Fundación Picasso-Museo Casa Natal (the Picasso Foundation and birthplace museum) as well as a curator from the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
The world famous gallery Centre Pompidou has come to Malaga. Without doubt the Pompidou art center in Paris is one of the greatest homes of twentieth century art. In line with the arresting appearance of the Pompidou in Paris the Malaga collection will be housed in the large glass cube, built with a cultural purpose in mind and which is situated at the corner which joins Muelle Uno and Muelle Dos of Malaga’s newly renovated port. The new Malaga Pop-Up museum houses a fine selection of its French mother.

With regard to the outstanding 2.5 million euros, De la Torre refers to the long-standing interest of bank Unicaja, already prominent in various artistic projects in Malaga, in sponsoring the cube. There are also moves to secure funds from a joint initiative between private French and Spanish businesses. In case Unicaja, currently undergoing a rigorous process of financial cutbacks, decides not to partake in the cultural scheme, the mayor claims to have a Plan B. He does not, for the moment, wish to discuss it.
