Icelite for the graphic works of Joan Mirò
Mirografie is a graphic exhibition dedicated to the graphic works of the Catalan master Joan Miró: for the first time in Milan, 70 works from an important private collection are on display to the general public at the prestigious Hospitale dei pellegrini SS. Pietro e Paolo.
The collector has entrusted the curation of the exhibit to a group of 12 students from the Collegio di Milano, known as Gruppo Iride, all of whom hold the same level of study, academic background and professional goals: this is one of the exhibition’s peculiarities.
The students were given the ambitious task of setting up and handling every aspect of a veritable art exhibit, including the design of the exhibit itself, as well as the catalogue and the communications plan, all within the scope of a training project that has been included amongst the cultural activities offered to the students at the Collegio di Milano.
Focusing upon the graphic works of the master Joan Miró, the monograph, which was published to mark the occasion of the exhibition itself, has been printed entirely on ICELITE, which was selected by the project’s artistic direction as the ideal medium.
This decision was mainly motivated by the product’s exceptional whiteness, natural surface and smooth finish, which entirely satisfied the need for a medium that would give the idea of purity and cleanliness, without neglecting the colour rendering of the print.
The exhibition is open to the public from January 20th to February 5th 2012.
