The Fundació Joan Miró presents Joan Miró. Women, Birds, Stars, a major exhibition of Miró’s work at the Museum of Art Pudong in Shanghai.

The Museum of Art Pudong, in Shanghai, a showcase for modern and contemporary art in China in the new building designed by Jean Nouvel Architects, will focus its inaugural exhibition on Joan Miró, one of the leading artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition, organised by the Fundació Joan Miró in collaboration with the Museum of Art Pudong, is the first show conceived and organised by the Fundació Joan Miró for China and the most important to be held on the artist’s work in Asia since 2014. It will be open to the public from 8 July to 7 November 2021.

Curated by Jordi Joan Clavero, Head of Public Programming and Education at the Fundació Joan Miró, the exhibition Joan Miró. Women, Birds, Stars includes sixty-nine paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints by the artist belonging to the foundation’s permanent collection and two private collections, plus a series of photographs by Joaquim Gomis, video material, and a public and educational program specially designed for this project. In the works on display, visitors will discover Miró’s imagination and his unique language of signs, as well as the way the artist experimented with a variety of techniques and materials and the new life he gave to everyday objects.
