«The encounter between Alexander Calder and Joan Miró represents one of the most fertile artistic friendships and sustained visual dialogues of the twentieth century. 

The work of Miró and Calder has frequently been paired in exhibitions. In proximity, Calder’s own mobiles, stabiles and tabletop/wall sculptures seem to activate the spatial qualities inherent in Miró’s painting, just as Miró’s imagistic universe of signs and schematic renderings of figures draws out in two dimensions many of the implications of Calder’s sculpture.

The exhibition Joan Miró and Alexander Calder: Space in Motion was organised by the Serralves Foundation in collaboration with Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona, and is curated by Robert Lubar Messeri.»
