OPENING THIS FALL: Miró: The Experience of Seeing

Featuring more than 50 remarkable paintings, drawings, and sculptures created by Joan Miró between 1963 and 1981, Miró: The Experience of Seeing is drawn entirely from the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, Spain. The exhibition features bold, colorful, and often playful compositions that highlight the artist’s ingenuity and offers a fresh assessment of the late period of Miró’s work—something that audiences in the United States have not yet had the opportunity to explore in depth.


The McNay is the only southwest venue and final stop of the exhibition’s U.S. tour which includes the Seattle Art Museum; The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University; and Denver Art Museum.

This exhibition is organized by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, Spain.
