Leave it to the Academy Art Museum to kick off the Mid-Shore’s post-pandemic art world with a bang. In this case, the AAM has pulled together two galleries of printmaking work of Joan Miró when he was working with influential British printmaker Stanley William Hayter in 1947.
This collaboration would be a seminal moment as Miró and Hayter pushed the boundaries the boundaries of screenprinting to the ‘absolute limit” during their time in New York, in what one art critic called “a loving dialogue.”
The Spy sat down yesterday with Mehves Lelic, the curator at the Academy Art Museum, to set this stage for this remarkable exhibition and on this remarkable collaboration.
