Miró en Zabalaga exhibition
From May 21 to November 6
Chillida Leku presents Miró at Zabalaga, from 21 May to 6 November, an exhibition as a tribute to Joan Miró and the friendship that united him with Eduardo Chillida.
Made up of sculptures, drawings and engravings that cover the artist's usual themes, the exhibition will include outstanding pieces such as "Oiseau solaire, Pájaro solar" (1946-1949) and Femme, Mujer (1970), which will be on display on the first floor of the Zabalaga farmhouse.
This monographic proposal will run parallel to and independently of Chillida's permanent exhibition, but will highlight the many points of connection and convergences between the two artists. "Miró has a special power to make his curves tend to be convex. And as I am rather concave...", said Eduardo Chillida in 1984 about this dialogue.
The selected works also include a tapestry made between 1989 and 1991 by Josep Royo from a lithograph of the book Le lézard aux plumes d'or by the Catalan artist.
Miró at Zabalaga is made possible thanks to the sponsorship of the Fundación Iberdrola España, as well as the collaboration of the Fundació Joan Miró Barcelona and the BBVA Collection, which have provided the main body of work. The exhibition is also supported by Centro Botín, Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró a Mallorca and other private collections.
The exhibition will be complemented by an extensive programme of workshops and activities.
