A new exhibition has opened at Bard Fortress in the north of Italy. ‘Joan Miro – Poem’ features 190 different works, including designs, lithographs, paintings, carvings, ceramics and sculptures.
Joan Miró was a Spanish Catalan painter, sculptor, and ceramicist born in Barcelona. His work encompassed surrealism, and an expression of Catalan pride. In various interviews throughout his life, Miró declared that conventional painting was a way of supporting bourgeois society.
The keynote of the exhibition is Joan Miro’s statement that there is no difference between painting and poetry. The collection on display highlights many aspects of the artist’s work: running from playful to disturbing images.
The exhibition runs until November 1.
