Cahiers d'Art 2018 : Miro
The 2018 Cahiers d'Art revue revisits Miró's works and relationship between Miró and Cahiers d'Art through an anthology of the most beautiful texts published in the revue. It also introduces unpublished objects and pieces from the artist's collection.
The stencil Miró made for the No. 1-4 of the 1936 revue is silkscreened as this revue's cover. The issue also includes an interview with Staffan Ahrenberg and Miquel Barceló, and works by Helen Marten, Koo Jong A and Karel Malich.
Anchored in the beauty of the Catalan land and in the primitive power of objects, Miró's works unfold their magical dimension alongside movements and theories. The art critic and founder of Cahiers d'Art, Christian Zervos never stopped following and defending the work of this unclassifiable artist, the most lyrical painter of his time and the most important post cubist artist.
Miró is indeed present in Cahiers d'Art from the first year of its existence, 1926, utill the last, 1960. He drew many covers and his famous stencil Help Spain!" (Aidez l'Espagne!) was published in the No. 4-5 of the 1937 issue of the Cahiers d'Art revue.
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 means: 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.
