Miró-Picasso Exhibition in Barcelona
The “Miró-Picasso” exhibition is an exceptional, unique event that stems from the collaboration between Fundació Joan Miró and the Picasso Museum in Barcelona. This wonderful project will be held at the same time at the two institutions, giving visitors the chance to enjoy this extraordinary exhibit from 20 October 2023 to 25 February 2024.
The intense friendship that blossomed between two giants of 20th century art – Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso – lies at the heart of this exhibition. These two masters had a close relationship lasting over half a century and they chose the vibrant city of Barcelona as the place to donate their work to monographic art centres.
The “Miró-Picasso” exhibition is structured around six core subjects, covering chronological and themed aspects. These are the backbone of the exhibit and reveal a rich, diverse narrative. A total of 250 works of art selected from prestigious public and private collections from around the world will be on display. The aim is to present these two artists who, with their unique voices and unprecedented intensity, transformed the course of 20th century art. Visitors will have the chance to explore their masterpieces side by side, observing how each artist left their mark on the history of art. The exhibit covers everything from their first meeting in Barcelona in 1917, which set the basis for their friendship and collaboration, to their last monumental projects. Notable episodes will also be explored such as their participation in the Spanish Republic’s Pavilion in Paris in 1937, an artistic expression committed to that turbulent time. Visitors can also delve into their shared interest in the ancestral technique of pottery.
“Miró-Picasso” is one of the events included in the Picasso Celebration 1973-2023. It includes a total of 50 exhibitions dedicated to Picasso’s work to be held all over the globe from autumn 2023 to spring 2024. The relevance of Picasso in the history of art persists and is still an endless source of inspiration for the world’s art community.
