Miró and the Object, the first museum show dedicated to the object in the work of Joan Miró, considers how the artist represents objects in painting, and how increasingly he brought them into his works. In many ways this transformation may arguably be understood in terms of a crisis in painting, and the object as new poetic direction.
This catalogue includes essays by William Jeffett, Didier Ottinger, Perejaume and Joan Punyet Miró that illuminate the variety of Miró’s production of paintings, collages, objects, ceramics and sculptures.
