The Joan Miró Collection consists of 85 works, which are owned by the State's Contemporary Art Collection, given to the Municipality of Porto and deposited at the Serralves Foundation.
The core of works goes from 1924 to 1981 and includes paintings, sculptures, collages, drawings and tapestries.
The works in the exhibition are grouped by themes that try to give a holistic view of the artist's path.
Joan Miró (1893-1983), one of the great “shapers” of the 20th century, was simultaneously an aesthetic “killer” who challenged the traditional limits of the media in which he worked.
In his art, the different practices dialogue with each other, crossing the media: painting communicates with drawing; sculpture seduces woven objects; and collages, always conjugations of disparate entities, function as a major principle or matrix for exploring the depths of reality.
