The exhibition The Force of Matter at MUDEC in Milan showcases over 100 works by the Spanish artist Joan Miró. It includes paintings on canvas, paper and other media, sculptures and prints made between 1931 and 1981.

At the centre of the exhibition is Miró’s interest in different materials, which helped him learn new painting techniques. The works are from the Fundació Joan Miró collection in Barcelona and from the collection of the artist’s family.

Joan Miró (1893-1983) was born in Barcelona and painted for most of the second half of his life in his studio in Palma, Mallorca. He is considered one of the greatest surrealists, and one of the big three of the Spanish 20th century modern art, next to Picasso and Dalí.
