The Joan Miró Foundation is inevitably linked with the first major exhibition organized by Joan Miró in Barcelona, around the year 68. The foundation brought vitality and dynamism, with a new concept of museum, for a mix of artistic expressions of all kinds.
Today, the Fundació Joan Miró is still a reference within the international art circuit. The temporary exhibition program focuses both on the creation of historical movements and on the latest trends in contemporary art.
A new show will open in June and it will last until October: the “Miró – Dupin, Art and Poetry”. This fantastic exhibition, will not leave you indifferent, and occurs in two well defined parts.
The first part is called Joan Miró and Poetry, and teaches us the constant interest of the artist for literature and poetry. This is not surprising, because Miró was in touch with the poetic avant-garde circle of the Galeries Dalmau in Barcelona, and with the group of Surrealists Rue Blomet in Paris.
This part of the exhibition brings together a selection of paintings and drawings from the collection of the Foundation, complemented by books and magazines, both Catalan and French, from the own library of Miró.
The second part of the exhibition is called Dupin, Miró. It is mainly dialogues between the poet and the painter, and it demonstrates their close work relationship and friendship. Miro’s works from the years 1960 and 1970 will be exhibited, but also some books illustrated by the painter Dupin. You will also see critical writings about Joan Miró, published in catalogs and magazines of the time.
This exhibition is homage to Dupin, for its invaluable assistance in the understanding of the work of Miró. Dupin’s work is still the essential reference and provides extensive documentation to convey the world of Miró.
