The exhibition "Miró-Picasso" is a unique collaborative project between the Fundació Joan Miró and the Museu Picasso in Barcelona, taking place simultaneously in both institutions. Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso, who maintained a close friendship for more than half a century, chose Barcelona as the place to donate their works in the form of monographic art centers.
The exhibition is organized around six major chronological and thematic axes and brings together more than 250 works from public and private collections from all over the world. The aim is to show side by side two artists who left an indelible mark on 20th century art with their unique voices and unparalleled plastic intensity. From their meeting in Barcelona in 1917 to their last monumental projects, passing through significant moments such as the episode of the Pavilion of the Spanish Republic in Paris in 1937 and their interest in the ancestral technique of ceramics, visitors will also discover how these two artists and friends shared transcendental moments in their careers.
"Miró-Picasso" is part of the events of the Picasso Celebration 1973-2023, which comprises a total of 50 exhibitions dedicated to Picasso to be held worldwide between fall 2023 and spring 2024.
