Joan Miró is one of the most renowned Spanish artists in the 20th century. Along with Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí, Miró is known as one of the three greats of Spanish modern art. He had a profound influence on modern art. Miró’s love for all kinds of everyday objects and their intrinsic poetic qualities is apparent throughout his long and fruitful career, turning ordinary objects into extraordinary art.

This exhibition is one of the rare large-scale retrospective exhibitions of Miró in Hong Kong in recent years and this is the very first time Fundació Joan Miró (FJM), the art institution which was founded by the Spanish master himself, holds an exhibition in Hong Kong. All the 94 Miró’s artworks are on display in Hong Kong for the first time, 80 per cent are exhibited in Asia for the first time and 11 of them are even loaned for the very first time from FJM, including the painting “Woman in front of the Moon” in 1976 and the lithograph Mannequins “Fashion Show Series, 1969”.

The rich exhibits include paintings, sculptures, drawings, textiles, lithographs, posters created by Miró in different ages, and audiovisual materials that are related to him. Showcasing his breakthroughs and achievements in different art media, the exhibition offers audiences a retrospective look at Miró’s creative career.

Complementing the exhibition with a unique Hong Kong viewpoint, the HKMoA has invited Hong Kong artists GayBird, Leelee Chan to create artworks inspired by the everyday life, and the curatorial team works with illustrator Zoie Lam to create education booklet and illustrations with AR characters.
