Conference: Joan Miró In The Eyes of His Grandson Joan Punyet Miró
23 September 2014
The exhibition hosts on its inauguration day a conference in which Joan Punyet Miró, the artist’s grandson, will participate. The conference, aiming at a further understanding of the exhibited works in SSM and the keys to Miró’s symbols, will be free of charge.
‘My grandfather’s world was rich and complex. As the French poet Raymond Queneau reflects, “Miró’s vocabulary resembles the Chinese pictograms ... To understand it, you need to take lessons.” My aim in giving this speech is to share with the participants my knowledge on my grandfather’s art and a few anecdotes about this man that I came to know in the last fifteen years of his life.’ –Joan Punyet Miró
September 23, 2014, Tuesday, 11.00- 12.00 hrs.
*The speech will be given in English with simultaneous interpretation to Turkish.
