On Saturday March 9th the Museu Picasso celebrated the 50th anniversary of its inauguration. Quite a milestone, particularly if we take into account the Barcelona of 1963 and the political environment of the time.
We are starting 2013 very much on the right foot and with good perspectives for the future of the museum. Nevertheless, we don’t want to forget everything we did in 2012, so you can find here a small selection of images of some of the projects we carried out in the museum last year:

With Bernardo Laniado-Romero at the front, a new period starts for the museum, with a lot of enthusiasm both from the new director and from the team of the museum. In his presentation of the new 2012-2013 season, he outlined the following lines of action:
The museum now knows a little more about its visitors after carrying out a one-year museum marketing study and conducting 2,102 situational interviews.

On Friday 13 April the Museo Picasso Málaga auditorium hosted the fourth celebration of the 4th International Seminar on Art and Law in Malaga, a result of an agreement between the lawyers’ Bars of Málaga, Barcelona and Paris, to organize consecutively a gathering each spring that would provide a forum for the latest developments in the field of law applied to art, and would not be limited to members of the Law career but actively undertake to share and discuss these matters with the other parties involved: museums, galleries, artists, dealers, public authorities, author’s rights agencies, etc.

Here, then, is just a taste of what the museum has done in 2011.
