JOAN MIRÓ: MATERIALITY AND METAMORPHOSIS
from 01 OCT 2016 to 04 JUN 2017
The exhibition ‘Joan Miró: Materiality and Metamorphosis’ is based on the collection of 84 works by Miró, owned by the Portuguese State. This important exhibition is curated by Robert Lubar Messeri, a leading world expert in Miró's work. Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira will be responsible for the exhibition’s architectural design.
The exhibition covers a six-decade period in Joan Mirós's career - from 1924 to 1981. It focuses in particular on the transformation of pictorial languages that the Catalan artist first developed in the mid-1920s. The exhibition considers his artistic metamorphoses across the mediums of drawing, painting, collage and work in tapestry.
Miró’s visual thinking and the ways in which he negotiates between optical and tactile modes of sensation is examined in detail, as are the artist’s working processes.  
The exhibition comprises around 80 works by Joan Miró from the collection of 85 works, most of which have never previously been seen by the general public, including six of his paintings on masonite produced in 1936 and six "sobreteixims" (tapestries) of 1973. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue with a lead essay by the curator.
Suzanne Cotter, Director of Serralves Museum, stated about the exhibition: "We are delighted to be able to contribute to a greater awareness and appreciation of the work of Joan Miró through what will be an authoritative and unique presentation of this singular collection”.
The exhibition ‘Joan Miró: Materiality and Metamorphosis’ is organised by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and is curated by Robert Lubar Messeri, with architectural design by Álvaro Siza Vieira.
