Miquel Barceló's latest works, a series of large-scale still lifes, will be the main focus of this internationally renowned Spanish artist’s appearance at the Hay Festival. The pieces are to be exhibited at the Thaddeus Ropac gallery in Pantin on the outskirts of Paris in October, and one will be part of an exhibition on the genre of still life at the Louvre in Paris. Associated with neo-expressionism, Barceló's work has evolved to become one of the most original on the European scene.
Barceló will be in conversation with the writer and exhibition curator Enrique Juncosa. He was director of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin from 2003 to 2012, for which he received the Order of Civil Merit. Before that, he was deputy director of IVAM and the Reina Sofía Museum. He has curated more than 70 exhibitions in major museums around the world.
The event will be presented by Sofía Barroso.
