Joaquím Gomis: Fundición Gimeno/Gimeno Foundry

Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona
10 May – 18 September 2016

Photographic exhibition focussing on the development of Catalan sculpture from the 1900s to the 1940s, including a series of images taken by Gomis (1902-1991) of his friend Miró’s visits to the Barcelona-based Gimeno foundry between 1944 and 1949, where the sculptor created his first series of bronzes. When Gomis (the first president of the Miró Foundation, 1972-75) visited the foundry workshop it had accumulated many sculpted rejects and forgotten maquettes left behind over the past four decades, which he captured with his camera.
