The Fundació Joan Miró introduces the Miró-Gaudí-Gomis exhibition
The exhibition, organized with the Fundació’s holdings and curated by Teresa Montaner and Ester Ramos with the Collections team, highlights the creative affinities between the two artists through the photographs of Joaquim Gomis, the foundation’s first president and a major figure in the effort to promote the work of Antoni Gaudí. The photo books that Gomis published in the 1950s with support from Joan Prats, a patron of the arts with a key role in establishing the Fundació, reveal the deep connections between the two artists: their relationship with nature, a penchant for risk and the use of similar procedures and materials, among other aspects.
The exhibition features a selection of Miró’s sculptures which establish a dialogue with Joaquim Gomis’ photographs of Gaudí’s architecture. The show is rounded off with the prints from the Gaudí Series, which Miró produced as a tribute to the architect in 1979.
