Exhibition: Miró y el Mori el Merma, Valencia

Miró y el Mori el Merma
Centro del Carmen, Valencia
11 June – 13 September

In 1978 Miró collaborated with the theatre company Teatre de la Claca to design, decorate and produce the masks and giant puppet figures for their production of Mori el Merma a play based on Alfred Jarry’s tyrannical Ubu figure, whom the artist associated with Franco’s reign. The production opened in Mallorca and Barcelona and subsequently toured Europe including a showing at the Riverside Studios in London. The exhibition displays for the first time since 1980 the masks and puppets, recently restored by the Instituto Valenciano de Conservación y Restauración, alongside a series of drawings and three portfolios of lithographs that Miró produced during the design process.
