The Sakıp Sabancı Museum (SSM) in Istanbul is hosting a comprehensive exhibition featuring one of the 20th century’s most important artists, Catalan artist and sculptor Joan Miro.
The exhibition, titled “Joan Miró. Women, Birds and Stars,” focuses on the mature period of the groundbreaking and versatile artist. Sponsored by Sabancı Holding and organized in collaboration with the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona, as well as the family collection Successió Miró and the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation in Mallorca, the show can be visited until Feb. 1, 2015.
The extensive exhibition provides the opportunity to understand the symbolic language of Miro through a rich selection of artworks in different mediums including oil on canvas, sculpture, lithography and ceramics. Istanbullites will be able to witness the various interpretations of the energy the artist drew from Miro’s distinctive interpretation of Mediterranean culture.
Works and personal items belonging to Miro from the family collection are included alongside certain assemblage artworks, presented with all of their preparatory stages.
