“Joan Miró: Order and Chaos” exhibition opens at Pensacola Museum of Art

Pensacola Museum of Art presents “Joan Miró: Order and Chaos” in the Kugelman Family Gallery and Henderson Thornton Gallery Aug. 23 to Nov. 13, 2011.

This survey of Miró′s original prints traces of the art movements of much of the 20th century and highlights Miró′s importance to the graphic medium, revealing his influence on the development of modern art.  One of the most productive and talented of the Surrealist painters, Miró′s style is a unique blend of Surrealist and Cubist principles, with residual influences of the early masters.

From the late 1920′s until his death in 1983, Miró produced a large number and wide range of graphic works. The prints in this exhibition reflect his use of Surrealism as a way of integrating his Spanish cultural roots with his artistic convictions.

Miró often focused on the warring impulses that have characterized much of the art produced during the 20th century — the twin drives of order and chaos, timidity and outrageousness. This exhibition gives viewers a better understanding of the attitudes and expressions of one of the most influential artists of the modern art movement.

This important collection of prints is presented by Blair-Murrah, the service organization that provides a wide range of historic, cultural, educational and contemporary exhibitions to institutions throughout the world.

The PMA is located at 407 South Jefferson Street, Pensacola. Museum hours: Tues. – Fri. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sat. and Sun. 12 to 5 p.m. Closed Mondays.  Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for students and active duty military.  Admission is free on Tuesdays.
