BRUSSELS.- Galerie de la Béraudière is presenting “Calder, Miró and their Parisian Meetings”, an exceptional exhibition that brings together works by the American sculptor and painter Alexander Calder (1898–1976) and the Spanish visual artist Joan Miró (1893–1983).

The close friendship that connected these two giants of the twentieth century lasted many years: from 1928, the year they first met in Paris, to Calder’s death in 1976. Although they did not create an artistic movement together, they abundantly fed on one another and one often notices a striking parallelism between their work, which Galerie de la Béraudière invites you to discover from 6 September 2018 onwards.

Both artists ‘revolutionized’ the history of art thanks to their audacious use of techniques and materials that were unconventional for the time. With great enthusiasm and inventiveness, they explored new creative possibilities, freed from cultural shackles.

These innovative spirits each developed a highly personal and immediately recognizable world. Their respective signature was a palette of very specific colours but also, and especially, poetry and humour. Their works are imbued with sensitivity and joviality.

Although one is known as a sculptor and the other as a painter, both worked with different media and used varied means of expression. Both were also very prolific, and the scale of their works varies from the minuscule models to monumental works.
Calder and Miró are undoubtedly two of the most groundbreaking artists of their generation. Their works inspired and continue to influence contemporary artists.

Located in a unique setting, on rue Jacques Jordaens in Brussels, Galerie de la Béraudière presents a selection of works that reflect the pleasure these two friends took in creating them. This autumn, the fantastic forms and creatures of Calder and Miró will breathe life into the spaces of the gallery. Prepare to be filled with wonder!
