Miró: Malerei als Poesie (Miró: Painting as Poetry)
Kunstsammlung Nordrhein Westfalen, Düsseldorf
13 June – 27 September 2015
Previously on at the Bucerius KunstForum, Hamburg, now on in an expanded form. Exhibition of about 50 paintings from across the artist’s career together with a representative selection from the more than 250 illustrated books that he designed. The exhibition explores two main themes: how Miró’s work was informed by contemporary literature both in Barcelona and in Paris after 1920; and how contemporary poets, such as André Breton, Paul Eluard and Tristan Tzara later collaborated with or were inspired by Miró’s work.
Reviewed in The Burlington Magazine May 2015 (pp 371-373) by Lesley Thornton-Cronin, former ARTES Facundo Riaño Essay Prize winner.
