1946-1947 Barcelona – Mont-roig – Karachi

This selection of photographs by Joaquim Gomis captures a historic and personal moment of suspended time and a sense of emptiness, of collective post-traumatic shock, of phantoms and absences, of dejection and very slow reconstruction. Meanwhile, in other parts of the world, new collective confrontations were erupting which were often the result of the dismantling of European ’empires’ and the beginning of the Cold War. Coinciding with the solo exhibition of Nalini Malani (born in Karachi, Undivided India, in 1946) at Fundació Joan Miró, we delved into Gomis’ archive to find photographs from those two years that would convey the prevailing mood in Catalonia right at the moment when what was known as British India was declaring its independence. A declaration that came with a territorial partition that brought about a wave of sectarian violence that, like in Spain, left a legacy that still needs reckoning and reconciliation.

Cunningham, Cage & Tudor (Sitges, 1966)

Thanks to Joan Miró’s generosity, Barcelona’s Club 49 invited the Merce Cunningham Dance Company to perform in Sitges in 1966. Joaquim Gomis, who was one of the club members, was able to photograph the American troupe, which included John Cage and David Tudor, at the famed La Ricarda residence during a break, as well as at a rehearsal prior to their perfomance.

Miró-Gaudí-Gomis

Miró always expressed his admiration for Gaudí’s work, valuing the architect’s penchant for risk and improvisation. The two artists viewed nature as the root of all their creative endeavours.

The exhibition features the Gaudí Series prints, which Miró produced as a tribute to the architect in 1979, and a selection of Miró’s sculptures which establish a dialogue with Joaquim Gomis’ photographs of Gaudí’s architecture.

Lina Bo Bardi Drawing

This exhibition is about the profound sense of connection that architect Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992) had with drawing. More than the tool of a designer, to her, drawing was a primary expressive means driven by a strong sense of curiosity and doubt. She never claimed drawing to be an independent artistic language, but she embraced it with artistic purpose. Drawing to her was both a noun and a verb, outcome and process, object and relationship.
