This Study Day explores issues raised by the major exhibition of Joan Miró at Tate Modern. Starting from the surrealist context of Mirós art it moves to the broader theme of the complex relationship between art and politics. Speakers address a range of issues, from the specific contexts in which Miró worked, to the radicalism of surrealism. Curators, academics and artists contribute to the debates. Speakers include artists Frederic Amat and Eva Bosch, art historians and curators Jon Bird, William Jeffett, Robert Lubar and Gill Perry, philosopher Nigel Warburton, and curators of the Miró exhibition Matthew Gale and Marko Daniel.
