For the past 15 years, Málaga, the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, has pushed to promote its connection to the great painter, as part of its efforts to turn itself into an arts center.

Now, the cultural ambitions of this southern Spanish city are taking on a new dimension, spearheaded by its longstanding mayor, who persuaded two prestigious museums to add here their first overseas offshoots: the Pompidou Center from Paris and the State Russian Museum from Saint Petersburg.

The Málaga branch of the Russian Museum was to be inaugurated on Wednesday, three days before the opening of the so-called Pop-Up Pompidou.

Centre Pompidou Plans a Temporary Outpost in Spain

In Spring 2015, Paris’ Centre Pompidou plans to open a temporary outpost in Malága, Spain, the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. “Pop-Up Pompidou” will present rotating exhibitions pulled from the Centre Pompidou’s permanent collection -- the largest modern and contemporary art collection in Europe. So far, Max Ernst’s “The Imbecile,” Francis Bacon’s “Self-Portrait,” and Picasso’s “The Flowered Hat 10/04/1940” are among the pieces expected to go on view at the pop-up museum.

The Malága City Hall will provide the institution with the iconic building “El Cubo,” or The Cube, a large glass-and-steel structure located on the city’s port, which is among the oldest ports in the world
