Malaga ‘hot’ for art

January 25, 2013

A new arts centre for 2013, La Térmica (heat), in Malaga, adds to the considerable artistic flowering of the Costa del Sol’s main city.

If you love art, you’ll love Malaga, it’s that simple. The Picasso Gallery, CAC contemporary arts centre and Carmen Thyssen museum are among many cultural attractions on offer. The new centre opens on January 18 with an exhibition of photos by Christopher Makos entitled ‘Lady Warhol’ and featuring his friend the artist Andy Warhol dressed as a female during the 1980s. Later in the year, September 27 to December 15, it’s the turn of acclaimed Los Angeles based artist Gina Osterloh, whose photography based work often uses the body as a prop melding this with performance and sculptural elements.


The Thermal is a 13,000m2 space dedicated to diverse cultural events including live music, so check out the programme when holidaying on the coast. Housed in the Malaga’s former civic centre, the lovely building with its courtyards, gardens and patios dates back to 1907. It has served as a hospital for those wounded in the war with Morocco in 1909 and as a centre for needy children up to 1987 before becoming a civic centre.

Situated a few streets back from the seafront on Avenida de los Guindos, La Térmica can be reached by a short bus ride (lines 15 and 16), taxi or car, with parking nearby.
