Museum Jorge Rando (Museo Jorge Rando)

Free admission

Quite the new boy on Málaga’s art scene, the Museum Jorge Rando (Museo Jorge Rando) opened in 2015 in the former cloister of the Monasterio de las Mercedarias, which itself dates from the 1870s. Conversion from cloister to clever art space took five years and today the gallery doubles as a studio for local artists, a cultural center and a research facility as well as housing a permanent exhibition of the bold, fluid works of Expressionist painter Jorge Rando.

Born in Málaga in 1941, Rando’s vast canvasses are impressively displayed in four dazzling white galleries lit from above through skylights. Alongside his paintings, temporary exhibitions of work by other Expressionists, including sculpture by Ernst Barlach, change roughly every six months.

The museum’s small central courtyard offers sculpture displays and is dominated by an ancient orange tree, planted by the monastery’s founder in 1878, and a shocking-pink life-size figure of a pregnant woman. Along with free guided tours, the museum offers arty movies, lectures, and the chance to peek into the ateliers of artists working there. Saturday visitors should not miss the weekly concerts held at noon.
