Morning star is one of the 23 Constellations that Miró painted from 1940 to 1941, following his desire to escape from reality right after the outbreak of World War II. Now, Acquavella Galleries has managed to bring together the nearly complete series in the Miró: Constellations show. Ester Ramos describes this gathering of the Constellations as a historic event and tells us about the importance of this series in the life and work of Joan Miró.

Christopher Green, curator, talks about the creation process of one of the most beautiful and surprising artist’s books of the 20th century. «À toute épreuve» is a book-object that went beyond simply illustrating the words of Paul Éluard to become something close to a sculpture.

Curated by Catalan artist Antonio Ortega, the exhibition offers a historical overview of attitudes and positions based on self-organization in contemporary art. It presents a personal selection of artists whose work dynamic has taken a turn that allows them to appropriate and maintain control of their own narrative.
