Must see: Spanish 'pop-up' Pompidou art center opens in Malaga
French museum Centre Pompidou opened its pop o-up on March 28.
The gallery will house works shipped from Paris including paintings and sculptures by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, German surrealist Max Ernst and Irish-born painter Francis Bacon, as part of a "pop-up" museum that will last at least five years.

The "Pop-up Pompidou" program is slated for expansion, and additional cities will soon to have the chance to apply to host a venue.
