Abertis, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation of Spain, and the Fundació Joan Miró collaborate to make an itinerant exhibition of Joan Miró in Embassies and Consulates of Spain abroad
Thanks to this agreement, the three institutions will organize an itinerant exhibition with works by the Catalan artist Joan Miró from the Fundació Joan Miró. The set of works will consist of 3 paintings (Personnage, Oiseau I, Personnage, Oiseau II, and Personnage, Oiseau III) and 2 sculptures (Femme, Oiseau and Femme), all of them original, as well as a modern photographic copy of Joaquim Gomis , photographer and friend of the surrealist artist of the 20th century.
Under the title "Universe Miró", this itinerant exhibition will initially tour the embassies of Spain in Rome, Berlin, Dublin, Brussels and Paris between March 15, 2019, and January 15, 2020. The objective is to be able to take this sample also to Diplomatic and consular representations of Spain in other countries, especially those in which the Abertis Group is present. The agreement also includes the realization of educational activities among local school communities, related to this exhibition.
