Olafur Eliasson – you are all over the city

I don’t know if you have noticed but I have certainly done so…

There are posters all over the city of Barcelona with his name on.
Olafur Eliasson.

And see it is working – I have now decided to give in and go and see the exhibition I knew nothing about until today.

This Danish/Icelandic man has won the first Joan Miró Award ever in 2007 and his exhibition at the Joan Miró Foundation exemplify his output from 1993 to the present, including new works produced specifically for the Joan Miró Foundation. The award of the Catalonian Joan Miró is awarded by “an international jury to a selected artist for his/her outstanding contribution to contemporary art along the spirit of research, engangement and freedom that characterized the life and work oj Joan Miró”.

I am curious. If you are not yet, click here to see some of Olafur’s work. Mmmm. I see why the jury picked him.
