The museum was created to be dynamic, with the profile of a cultural center. Therefore it has differentiated spaces where temporary exhibitions are held. Visitors always encounter a novelty during their visits, however frequent these may be. The temporary exhibitions present a broad range of topics or supports. National and international contemporary art, photography, design and architecture exhibitions alternate during the year, bringing the public a universe of images.
MASP also presents musical projects, cinema and lectures. The two auditoriums designed by Lina Bo provide a multiple space for these activities.
