Tribute to Gaudí

The exhibition Joan Miró. The Gaudí Series highlights the influence of the Modernista architect on Miró’s production through a group of prints titled Gaudí Series, comprising twenty-one pieces in a variety of sizes and featuring fantastic characters with which the artist paid tribute to the architect in the mid-1960s. Miró was particularly drawn to the rhythm and structure of Gaudí’s work; he shared his urge to question the use of existing procedures and materials as well as a deep bond with nature, the generating force behind his creations. The treatment of colour and the use of curved lines in these prints are reminiscent of the trencadís broken-tile mosaic technique, a hallmark of Gaudí’s work.

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 design 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.

Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain

The exhibition Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain provides an insight into one of the most important poles of the Surrealist movement’s complex international network. The North American photographer Lee Miller and her partner, the British artist Roland Penrose, acted as ambassadors of the Surrealist cause in London. They were also close friends with Joan Miró, who remained in permanent contact with the Surrealist scene in Britain, culminating with his monographic exhibition at the Tate Gallery in 1964.
