Centre Pompidou Malaga

The Centre Pomidou Malaga, located in Malaga's Cubo area, is an offshoot of the Centre Pompidou in Paris. It hosts a selection of works by 20th and 21st century artists from across the world arranged in five sections titles 'Metamorphoses', 'Self Portraits', 'The Man Without a Face', 'The Political Body' and 'Body in Pieces'. The exhibitions are powerful, thought-provoking and, at times, a little bit controversial.

There are some very unusual and interesting pieces in this gallery. Some made me stop to think and some just confused me. Perhaps I'm not the one to judge since I am no art critic. On the other hand, art should be for everyone to appreciate and to make their own conclusions. So, with that in mind, I think there were perhaps only 2 or 3 pieces that I would choose to have in my own home. Not that I have a home while I'm travelling long term but maybe one day!

I took my time looking around the permanent exhibitions and it only took me 45 minutes. I feel like €7 was a bit expensive for the amount there was to see but I did enjoy it. I would probably allow up to 1 hour to see both the permanent and temporary exhibitions which currently costs €9 for both.
