The Miró Chair is organising the international symposium Joan Miró: Painting - Poetry in Paris

This academic event will study Joan Miró’s contribution to contemporary art by recovering the path that sought to merge painting and poetry. Experts will examine the influence of the French and Catalan poetry traditions on Miró and his contemporaries. The symposium, co-ordinated by Robert Lubar Messeri and Rémi Labrusse on behalf of the Joan Miró International Research Group, will take place on 9 and 10 November 2018 at New York University in Paris, coinciding with the major Joan Miró retrospective at the Grand Palais.

The event is organised by the Miró Chair (Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona - Universitat Oberta de Catalunya), NYU Paris and Université Paris-Nanterre, with the support of the Provost’s Global Research Initiative (NYU) and the collaboration of the Institut Ramon Llull. The symposium’s research will be published in the fourth volume of Miró Documents, a series of scientific publications promoted by the Miró Chair, which explores the artist’s work in depth, drawing on the resources of the Fundació Joan Miró Archive.
