Travelling from Tate Britain and Kunstmuseum Den Haag, the largest retrospective of the artist's work to date is on view in Málaga, 26 April–21 August 2022.
The exhibition by Paula Rego (b. 1935) will present an uncompromising artist of extraordinary imaginative power, Rego redefined figurative art and revolutionised the way in which women are represented. The exhibition tells the story of this artist’s remarkable life, highlighting the personal nature of much of her work and the socio-political context in which it is rooted. It reveals her broad range of references, from comic strips to history paintings. Featuring over 80 works including collage, paintings, large-scale pastels, drawings and etchings, the show spans Rego’s early work from the 1960s to her richly layered, staged scenes from the 2000s.
