On 28 March 2015, Prime Minister of the Spanish government, Mariano Rajoy, and the French Minister of Culture and Communication, Fleur Pellerin, have opened a temporary space of the Centre Pompidou in Málaga, Andalusia.
The establishment is partly underground with a glass cube emerging from ground which gives it its name: El Cubo. The total space measures 6,000 square-metres with exhibition space comprising 2,000 square-metres. This space was given to artist Daniel Buren, who has filled it with his installation Incubé, meaning “I brooded” in Spanish. The inauguration was a response to both the economic crisis which has struck the city of Málaga and to the 51 Spanish deaths in the Airbus A380 crash on 24 March 2015. This Centre Pompidou space will remain in Málaga for five years.
