The exhibition ‘Joan Miró: Materiality and Metamorphosis’ is based on the collection of 85 works by Miró, owned by the Portuguese State. This important exhibition is curated by Robert Lubar Messeri, a leading world expert in Miró’s work.
The exhibition covers a six-decade period in Joan Mirós’s career – from 1924 to 1981. It focuses in particular on the transformation of pictorial languages that the Catalan artist first developed in the mid-1920s. The exhibition considers his artistic metamorphoses across the mediums of drawing, painting, collage and work in tapestry.
Miró’s visual thinking and the ways in which he negotiates between optical and tactile modes of sensation is examined in detail, as are the artist’s working processes. (F. Bano press-release)
