Housed in a building designed by architect Agustín Ortiz de Villajos for the Duchess of Medina de las Torres. Following a series of restructuring and upgrading works the exhibition area now covers an area of around 1000 m2, divided into three rooms which are mainly used for exhibiting the plastic arts from the last third of the 19th century through to just after the Second World War. The exhibition rooms opened in the autumn of 2008, coinciding with a new international perspective in our programming following an in-depth review of the modernization of Spanish art between the last third of the 19th century through to the Spanish Civil War.

Free admission to the “Espacio Miró” permanent exhibition with the purchase of your ticket.
If there is no exhibition showing, the entrance fee will be €3 per person.

Rodin-Giacometti

Exhibition in Madrid. Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall

From 02/06/2020 to 23/08/2020

Auguste Rodin (Paris, 1840-Meudon, 1917) and Alberto Giacometti (Borgonovo, Switzerland, 1901-Coira, Switzerland, 1966) never met each other. In fact, when Giacometti arrived in Paris in 1922, Rodin had been dead for five years. However, through their artistic careers we can witness an interesting dialog between them which reveals a number of similarities but also differences in their work, something which is inevitable in two such free-thinking artists separated by more than a generation.

Entering the artistic universe of Miró means discovering the embodiment of pure color, identifying the logic of symbols and evaluating the difficult harmony between the constant and the ethereal. The Catalan artist, who exerted a powerful influence on key American painters of the mid-20th century, was a creator, magician and genius of contemporary.

With this exhibition we seek to dig deeper into Miró's soul through 65 works which include some of the symbols most characteristic of his work: stars, suns, moons, birds and feminine forms. The elements of his works are strategically placed on the canvas and speak to the importance of meditation in art and the concept of controlled spontaneity. Furthermore, five of Calder's structures reveal the friendship and professional relationship between the two artists.
