The first temporary exhibition staged by the museum opened in October 1971 under the title Works by Picasso in the Hugué Collection. It paved the way for one line of action within the exhibition program, designed to disseminate the quality, wealth and diversity of Picasso’s oeuvre, complemented by the second program, designed to further knowledge of his background by displaying works by contemporary artists and trends.

The works by Pablo Picasso, Manolo Hugué, Joaquín Torres García and so many others have been presented in the museum halls following the most suitable criteria, both as regards the exhibition narratives and as regards the improvements in museum displays.

An interactive display in the galleries allows visitors to consult documentation on all the exhibitions presented by the museum.
