JOAN MIRÓ. MATERIALITY AND METAMORPHOSIS
Materia: Monografías de arte contemporáneo
Miró considered materiality to be the foundation of his artistic practice. This catalogue, edited by Lubar Messeri, is published on the occasion of an exhibition of works by Miró organised by the Serralves Museum. Richly illustrated with numerous artworks and preparatory sketches by the artist, it surveys his output over six decades and across different media, which included painting, sculpture, and ceramics. It reveals the way his continued exploration of materiality and innovative language of visual signs expanded the boundaries of artistic production in the 20th century and beyond, impacting numerous artists since.
