Rare Work of Surrealist Artist Joan Miró Makes Maiden Voyage to Seattle

On February 13, 2014, the Seattle Art Museum will showcase, Miró: The Experience of Seeing. The exhibit captures the final artistic endeavors of Joan Miró (1893-1983), a world-renowned 20th century pioneer known for his surrealist approach to the arts. The exhibit will run through May 26.

Miró: The Experience of Seeing is comprised of 48 works of art that include paintings, sculptures and drawings. All 48 works of art were created between 1963 and Joan Miró’s death in 1983. This is the first time that such work will be on display on the West Coast and all works of art are travelling from Spain’s national museum of modern and contemporary art - Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid.

The exhibit allows visitors to experience the richness of Miró’s artistic insights in the form of bold and colorful compositions intermingled with abstract imagery. The exhibit also gives visitors the opportunity to observe Miró’s take on the interaction between the mediums of paint and sculpture. By exploring such interaction, onlookers and admirers are provided new avenues through which to approach the artist’s cumulative career.
