The works of Joan Miró, owned by the Portuguese State, are shown to the public for the first time at Casa de Serralves from September 2016 and 30 until 28 January 2017. This exhibition, 'Joan Miró: Materialidade e Metamorfose', is curated by Robert Lubar, a prominent specialist in Messeri works of Miró, and has an exhibition project of Álvaro Siza Vieira. The exhibition covers a period of six decades of career of Joan Miró, from 1924 to 1981. In particular about the transformation of pictorial languages that the Catalan artist began to develop in the mid-1920, discusses his artistic metamorphosis in the fields of drawing, painting, collage and work in tapestry. The visual thinking of Miró, the way he works with sensations that vary between the tactile and optical and the processes of elaboration of his works are observed in detail. The exhibition will include approximately 80 works by Joan Miró (the set of 85 works Collection) mostly unknown to the public, including six of his paintings on masonite from 1936 and also six sobreteixims of 1973. On the occasion of the exhibition, organized by the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, will be published a catalogue profusely illustrated with an essay by the Commissioner.
In the decades of the 60's and the 70's, the artistic languages have undergone a paradigm shift. The sculpture was not exception. In this exhibition the works of Ângelo de Sousa, João Machado and Zulmiro de Carvalho report us to this reality. In this presentation of works from the Coleção Serralvesat the Palácio da Bolsa, some sculptures take over the ground, regardless of the plinth, other transmit us visible concerns with the ideas of seriality, industrial manufacturing and literality of technique (what we see is what we see). These elements are enough to realise that the Portuguese sculptors have submitted proposals which today confront us with the various pats that were making the art more and more direct in contact with the public, from pop art, english abstract sculpture, and american minimalism. This presentation is the result of a partnership between the Palácio da Bolsa and the Museu de Serralves de Arte Contemporânea no Portounder which works from the Serralves Collection are displayed in the historical interiors of the Palace.
