“You and all my writer friends have given me much help and improved my understanding of many things,” Joan Miró told the French poet Michel Leiris in the summer of 1924, writing from his family’s farm in Montroig, a small village nestled between the mountains and the sea in his native Catalonia. The next year, Miró’s intense engagement with poetry, the creative process, and material experimentation inspired him to paint The Birth of the World.

Magritte & Dalí is a first-of-its-kind special exhibition dedicated to the world’s two most celebrated surrealists, Rene Magritte and Salvador Dalí. Showcasing carefully curated, exemplary pieces from Magritte’s and Dalí’s works, the exhibit pushes back the curtain to reveal what lies beyond the simple appearance of painted images. These two preeminent surrealists opened minds to an alternative view of the world, constantly challenging reality.

Viol legend Jordi Savall revisits Alain Corneau’s 1991 film Tous les matins du monde in a stunning program of music from the French Baroque. The award-winning motion picture explored the often tense relationship between viol master Marin Marais and his mentor Sainte-Colombe, with Savall and Le Concert des Nations providing the crucial soundtrack. Over 27 years after the movie’s premiere, Savall has assembled some of the world’s finest musicians for an evocative program featuring music by these extraordinary composers and other French Baroque masters, including Jean-Baptiste Lully, François Couperin, and Jean-Marie Leclair.

<![CDATA[LA CHANA, screening at the National Arts Club in New York]]>Cinema. New York, 22/01/2019
With depth, humor and pathos, LA CHANA celebrates the charisma of a self-taught Gypsy flamenco dancer who in the 1960s-80s rose to international stardom and then suddenly vanished from the public eye at the height of her career.  Peter Sellers saw her dance as a young woman and asked her to perform in the film ‘THE BOBO in 1967. Hollywood beckoned, but that was not to be.  In her baroque boudoir in Barcelona, La Chana continues to practice her art and reveals the reason her career came to such an abrupt end. Filled with footage of spectacular flamenco dance and music, this film brings us under the skin and into the irrepressible spirit of this artist with an uncanny gift for rhythm who, despite all odds, enjoys a comeback in her late sixties.

<![CDATA[Invisible Forces by Ester Partegàs take New York City]]>Arts Visuals. New York, 06/01/2019
Ester Partegàs's sculptures, images and installations recreate mass-produced objects and generic public spaces – spaces characterized by the flow of commercial transactions, consumption, disposal and loss. Employing processes that entail direct contact with an original – casting, printing, copying and tracing – the works examine the most unassuming details of everyday life as a record of shared affective, social, political and metaphysical connections between people and things. Her work has been shown at El Paso Museum of Art/Museo de Arte Ciudad Juárez, Mexico; Museum of the City, New York; and MACBA, Barcelona.

Ester Partegàs is a Catalan visual artist and educator. She lives and works in New York.

Research undertaken upon the Meadows’ 2014 acquisition of Salvador Dalí’s painting The Fish Man (L’homme poisson, 1930) opened doors to areas within Dalí’s 1930s oeuvre worthy of further study; foremost among them, Dalí’s propensity for painting on a small scale. Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929–1936, is the first exhibition on the artist to focus solely on his small-format works.
