Joan Miró: ‘The Ladder of Escape’

By Victoria Khroundina | February 3, 2015


The Joan Miró: Women, Birds, Stars exhibition at the Sakıp Sabancı Museum has been extended until March 8, so if you haven’t yet seen this wonderful show, you still have some time.

For some background, watch the below short documentary, The Ladder of Escape, which follows some of the most tempestuous periods of the art world in the 20th century through the lens of Miró’s life. It is eloquently narrated by the actor Ed Harris.
