Exhibition at MUDEC, Museo delle Culture, Milan brings together a total of 114 works by Joan Miró
Joan Miró, Personnage dans la nuit, 1974.
MILAN.- Joan Miró. La forza della materia includes a broad representation of this experimentation with matter, through 114 works of their funds and private collections, presented in four rooms. In the first one, paintings and drawings from 1931 and 1944 are exhibited, most of which produced under the influence of the Spanish Civil War and World War II. Thus, these works synthesize the tragedy of this period and show the new symbolic language that Miró configured.

The move of Joan Miró in 1956 to Palma de Mallorca, where his friend, the architect Josep Lluís Sert, had designed a studio, is the starting point of the exhibits in the second room. The paintings of this space show how Miró, with the desire to reach an increasingly anonymous artistic expression, releases his gesture. At maturity of his career, a continuing interest in matter and its possibilities lead him to work with profusion bronze sculpture, also represented in this room. Miró uses the lost-wax process to give life to new beings by the assembly of objects, mainly from natural and popular environment.

The third room presents a series of works of the seventies in which Miró continued questioning the ultimate meaning of the painting without ever leaving it. With the intention of removing all illusory elements of his painting, he underwent it to the most unorthodox practices -for example, burning the canvases- while uses or reuses the most unusual medias, wood, sandpaper, paintings pompier style, etc. Destroying and creating both, the artist provokes the viewer and questions the economic value of the artwork.

The last section of the exhibition focuses on the sculptural and graphic works of Miró, modalities with immense technical possibilities enhanced by collaborative work with artisans. In this room are remarkable his works with carborundum -an artificial abrasive made from powder of carbon and silicon-, that allows him to enrich the matter and enhance the line of the engravings. In each of these disciplines, Joan Miró challenges the technique seeking the freedom of expression that he achieved with painting.

Joan Miró. La forza della materia is organized by the Fundació Joan Miró in Milano, Italy at the MUDEC, Museo delle Culture, a center dedicated to the interdisciplinary research on the world cultures. Taking inspirations from the civic ethnographic collections and in partnership with our communities, MUDEC intend to create a place where to dialogue on contemporary themes by the medium of visual, performing and sound art, design and costume. The MUDEC presents an innovative form of governance with a partnership between the public and private sectors involving the Milan City Council and 24 ORE Cultura – Gruppo 24 Ore.
