The Miró Foundation to host a temporary exhibition that embraces everything from Fauvist figuration to conceptual art
From 29 October to 22January 2016 part of the Miró Foundation will be given over to an exhibition which, under the title Endgame: Duchamp, chess and the avant-gardes, analyses 20th century avant-gardes up to the beginning of conceptual art, from a unique angle: the game of chess and the life of Marcel Duchamp. Curated by art historian Manuel Segade, the exhibition reveals the ongoing presence of the game of chess in multiple artistic currents, allowing us to observe the shift from the pleasure of playing to the analysis of language. Visitors to the exhibitions will see Fauvist figurative paintings from the 1910s, surrealist pieces and conceptual artworks by leading artists of the modern era.
Paul Klee, Vassili Kandinski, Man Ray, Max Ernst and Sonia Delaunay are only a few of the great names features in this temporary exhibition. A number of entities and institutions have announced guided visits to the exhibition including Centre Cultural Albareda on Sunday 20 November at 11am, and Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) on Thurday 15 December at 6pm. Those interested should book early.
