Una de les fotografies que es pot veure a l'exposició

The Miró Foundation presents an exhibition of photographs by Joaquim Gomis

Gomis was one of the greatest 20th century Catalan photographers

The Barcelona-born photographer Joaquim Gomis was a great friend of the painter  Joan Miró – in fact, he took most of the photographs we have of the artist – is the subject of an exhibition at his friend’s foundation. The photographic exhibition Gimeno Foundry, which occupies the lobby of the foundation building, is a documentary with eleven images of the visit that Miró and Gomis paid to the Gimeno Foundry in the 1940’s. There, Gomis found artistic expressions both on the leadership cult of the Franco dictatorship and the remains of art periods prior to the Republic. It was a kind of improvised assemblage that Gomis managed to portray with his usual finely-honed irony. The selection of photographs on display offer an unusual insight into the evolution of Catalan sculpture in the first 40 years of the 20th century.

Gomis (1902 - 1991) is considered to be one of the greatest 20th century Catalan photographers. He was a founder member of the Amics de l'Art Nou and Club 49, together with a number of people who actively worked for the diffusion of avant-garde art in Catalonia from 1930 to 1970. His work has appeared at prestigious galleries in Paris, Milan, New York and Barcelona. This exhibition at the Miró Foundation can be seen until 18 September.
