Exhibition Joan Miró. The essence of things past and present
BAM. 8.10.2022 < 8.01.2023
8.10.2022 < 8.01.2023
The prolific and unique work of painter, sculptor, engraver and ceramist, Joan Miró is on display at BAM!
From his academic training through his early Fauvist landscapes and still lifes to the influence of primitivism, Romanesque art and Japanese calligraphy, “Joan Miró. L'essence des choses passées et présentes” (the essence of things past and present) journeys through more than half a century of raw, occasionally wild but always unexpected experimentation.
A hundred original works will be displayed (paintings, gouaches, drawings, ceramics, sculptures, etc.), from prestigious international public and private collections, including the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró (Palma de Mallorca), the Fundació Joan Miró (Barcelona), the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, the Musée National Picasso-Paris, the Maeght Foundation and the LaM.
Immersive and interactive displays will feature along the way to help visitors better understand how Miró approached his creative process.
During this exhibition, the BAM also gives carte-blanche to a contemporary Brussels artist, Xavier Noiret-Thomé.
He creates a dialogue between works from our 20th century collections in Mons, with his own creations. All of which will echo and complement Miró’s reflections on art and its roots.
An exhibition organised with the support of the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) and the Walloon Region.
