Works of Joan Miró, that are owned by the Portuguese State, are on display to the public for the first time at the Museu Serralves in Porto. This exhibition, called Joan Miró: Materiality and Metamorphosis, is curated by Robert Lubar Messeri, a leading world expert in the work of Miró. The design of the show is by renowned Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. This unique show runs through 28 January 2017.

The exhibition covers a period of six decades of Miró´s career, from 1924 to 1981. There are about 80 works (of the 85 in the Portuguese collection). Some are very rare and have not been seen in public in many years, including six works on Masonite from 1936, and six weavings from 1973.
