This film tells the story behind the Miró: Sculptor exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (17.03.12–06.01.13). In collaboration with the artist’s foundations and family, it is the first major UK exhibition of sculpture by Joan Miró, one of Europe’s most important 20th century artists. The exhibition describes the extraordinary wealth of Miró’s sculpture, much of which was made in the second half of his life. With key works set in the landscape, the exhibition fulfils the artist’s desire that “sculpture must stand in the open air, in the middle of nature”.
