Jointly organised by the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona
As one of the most renowned Spanish artists of the 20th century, Joan Miró’s love for all kinds of everyday objects and their intrinsic poetic qualities is apparent throughout his long and fruitful career. Linking art to life was one of his greatest aspirations, which was realised by his unique ability to perceive the poetic qualities possessed by the most humble of objects. This exhibition presents 94 artworks (including paintings, sculptures, drawings, textiles, lithographs, posters) and audio-visual materials, many of which come from the Fundació Joan Miró, an institution founded by Miró himself in 1975.
To complement the exhibition, the Museum has invited local artists GayBird and Leelee Chan to create installations in response to Miró’s art, and local illustrator Zoie Lam to create Miró-inspired illustrations for an education booklet and a special display with elements of augmented reality effects. Artworks from the Museum’s own collection are also showcased in juxtaposition with Miró’s art to create a unique dialogue between the East and the West.
Tickets for the exhibition are available up to 7 days in advance at all URBTIX outlets and self-service ticketing kiosks at HKMoA or other designated locations. Holders of valid Museum Passes can enjoy free admission to this exhibition.
