Joan Miró. It is when I dream that I see clearly
- 29 April 2023 - 01 Oktober 2023
For the first time in Italy, an unpublished exhibition on Joan Miró, one of the greatest protagonists of art of the last century, will be presented. The exhibition itinerary outlines the figure of the artist-man, touching on the peculiarities of his person, from his ecological convictions to his commitment to the anti-fascist struggle, from the very strong need for freedom to his rebellion against all forms of tyranny up to his ability to weave arts distant as poetry, sculpture, theatre, photography.
The sections of the exhibition highlight Miró’s triple moral commitment: respect for nature, political freedom and the innovation of artistic language.
Multifaceted and undisciplined Surrealist, attracted by Dadaism and inspired by the dreamlike dimension and psychic automatism, the Catalan artist has made freedom of expression the foundation of his creative adventure
- A unique event in Italy
- A great author of the twentieth century
