The Exhibition: Joan Miro

Joan Miro at Tate Modern

He’s one of those, isn’t he, Joan Miro? (And remember the pronunciation is Jo-Anne, because Joan would just be silly) One of those where you quite like it but don’t quite get it. But all will be clear (well, it will if you splash out on the audio guide) when Tate Modern’s major new Miro exhibition – the first on this scale in half a century – kicks off down near the wobbly bridge on 14th April.
The Catalan artist is known for his brightly coloured, more or less abstract later works, but his earlier stuff is fascinating in that you start to see where the forms of those later works originated (do we sound like we know what we’re talking about here?)
It’s big, it’s important, it’s worth reading something about (for instance, did you know that the little star shapes represent anuses?) and it’s definitely worth a visit. Tickets will be going faster than your average hot cake, so book here now.
