For modern art aficionados, the Contemporary Art Centre (CAC Málaga) is an essential part of any itinerary. Based next to the river, in the increasingly fashionable Soho district, the CAC has housed some of the most current artists in the world, works by street artist Obey and D-Face (whose murals decorate the Soho area), and ‘the artist of the moment’ Chinese Ai Wei Wei.
The building itself, which first opened in 1939, is a magnificent example of self-sufficient rationalism by the architect Gutiérrez Soto. It is perhaps fitting then that the Contemporary Art Centre took it over in 1998.
Don’t forget to explore the surroundings too. Many of the walls, including those on the banks of the river, have been taken over by street art, may of international repute.
