CaixaForum Madrid
PROGRAMA

«Solo utilizo los objetos que encuentro; los reúno todos en mi taller, que es muy grande. Pongo los objetos alrededor, por el suelo, y escojo aquel o aquel otro. Junto unos cuantos, y a veces aprovecho elementos de otras esculturas.» (Joan Miró a Dean Swanson. Interview de Miró à propos des sculptures. Minneapolis: Walker Arte Center, 1971.)

Desde los  primeros experimentos del artista con esculturas y collages basados en objetos hasta sus experimentaciones iniciales con la fundición y sus piezas de madurez, la práctica escultórica de Joan Miró invita a establecer paralelismos con la obra de otros artistas, como Julio González, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Hans Arp, Isamu Noguchi, Alberto Giacometti, Henry Moore y David Smith, entre otros.

Las ponencias del simposio internacional Miró y la escultura del siglo xx  abordarán desde cuestiones propias de la técnica y la producción escultóricas hasta la posición de Miró como creador de objetos surrealistas y su función en el posterior desarrollo de prácticas escultóricas basadas en objetos, así como la renovación que aportó a las técnicas y las tradiciones de la escultura del siglo xx.

Rosa Maria Malet, directora de la Fundació Joan Miró, Josep A. Planell, rector de la Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, e Ignasi Miró, director del área de Cultura de la Fundación ”la Caixa”, abrirán el simposio el viernes, 15 de abril, a las 9.30 h. Robert Lubar Messeri, director de la NYU en Madrid, de la Cátedra Miró y del International Miró Research Group, y coordinador del simposio, presentará las conferencias de la primera jornada: Las construcciones en relieve de Miró de 1930, a cargo de Elizabeth Cowling, profesora emérita de Historia del Arte y miembro honoraria de la University of Edimburgh; Joan Miró y el monumentalismo detrítico en la escultura de posguerra, por Robert Slifkin, profesor asociado de Arte Moderno del Institute of Fine Arts de NYU, y Miró: puntos de partida para la escultura, dictada por Briony Fer, catedrática de Historia del Arte del University College de Londres.

La conferencia Metáforas visuales y lingüísticas en las esculturas basadas en objetos de Miró y Duchamp, de Julia Domènech, profesora de NYU en Madrid, iniciará la sesión de la tarde. Thierry Dufrêne, catedrático de Historia del Arte de la Université Paris Ouest Nanterre presentará Los personajes de Joan Miró: reificación y escultura, y Alexander Potts, profesor titular de la cátedra Max Loehr de la University of Michigan cerrará la jornada con la ponencia La escultura moderna en la esfera pública: Joan Miró y Eduardo Chillida.

El sábado, 16 de abril, William Jeffett, conservador jefe de exposiciones del Museo Salvador Dalí de St. Petersburg (Florida) y comisario de la exposición Miró y el objeto, moderará una mesa redonda con los artistas Perejaume y Juan Luis Moraza. Joan Punyet Miró, representante de la Successió Miró y nieto del artista, y Robert Lubar Messeri, coordinador del simposio, clausurarán el encuentro.

El simposio Miró y la escultura del siglo xx  tendrá lugar en CaixaForum Madrid, donde hasta el 22 de mayo de 2016 se puede visitar la exposición Miró y el objeto. La muestra, comisariada por William Jeffett, explora por primera vez de forma específica la presencia del objeto en la obra del artista, y revela cómo Miró evoluciona desde la representación pictórica del objeto hasta su incorporación física en la obra a través del collage y el assemblage para explorar, posteriormente, nuevas técnicas como la cerámica o la escultura.

 La exposición, organizada conjuntamente por la Fundació Joan Miró y la Obra Social ”la Caixa”, presenta más de un centenar de obras procedentes del fondo de la Fundació Joan Miró y de las principales colecciones públicas y privadas de Europa y América, además de una selección de objetos originales que el artista coleccionó a lo largo de su vida.

  1. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  2. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  4. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  5. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  6. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  10. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  12. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  14. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
