Miró & CoBrA. The Joy of Experiment
From 10 October 2015 to 31 January 2016
- With over 100 works by Joan Miró, this is the first major exhibition of his work in the Netherlands in 59 years - the previous one was in the Stedelijk Museum in 1956.
“This will be one of the most exciting Miró exhibitions in a long time!”
Joan Punyet Miró, Joan Miró’s grandson and Director of Successió Miró
Miró & CoBrA. The Joy of Experiment is the first exhibition to explore the relationship between Joan Miró (1893-1983) and CoBrA (1948-1951). A chance encounter in 1946 between Asger Jorn, a Dane, and Dutch artist Constant Nieuwenhuys laid the foundations for CoBrA, an international group of post-war artists. The two met at an exhibition of work by Miró in the Galerie Pierre Loeb, in Paris, and established Miró as a recurrent element in the movement’s history.
For this special exhibition, a surcharge of €5 euro is charged. During this special exhibition the museum open an hour earlier (10:00).
