“A Conversation On Joan Miró” with His Grandson Joan Punyet Miró at NYU, Oct. 30

October 13, 2008
N-87, 2008-09

In celebration of the major museum exhibition “Joan Miró: Painting and Anti-Painting 1927-1937,” which will be on view at The Museum of Modern Art from November 2, 2008 through January 12, 2009, the Catalan Center at New York University will host “A Conversation with Joan Punyet Miró”. This special event takes place on Thursday, October 30, at 7 p.m., at NYU’s King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center, 53 Washington Square South. It is free and open to the public. For further information, call 212.998.8255.

Joan Punyet Miró, the artist’s grandson, executor, and coauthor of the recent catalogue raisonné of Miró and Josep Lloren Artigas’ works in ceramics, will discuss Miró’s work and the upcoming exhibition with Anne Umland, curator of the upcoming exhibition at MoMA. Punyet Miró will also offer personal insights into the life of Surrealism’s greatest and most lyrical painter-poet. The dialogue will be moderated by Edward J. Sullivan, dean of humanities in the NYU Faculty of Arts and Science.

“Joan Miró: Painting and Anti-Painting 1927-1937” is the first major museum exhibition to investigate Miró’s notorious claim that he wanted to “assassinate” painting. By assembling in unprecedented depth the interrelated series of paintings, collages, objects, and drawings Miró created over the course of a single, transformative decade, the exhibition reveals Miró’s struggle not simply to negate painting, but to reinvent and reinvigorate his own art.

The event is organized by the Catalan Center, an affiliate of the Institut Ramon Llull, and MoMA, with the support of the King Juan Carlos Center.
