24 September – 22 November 2015
Harland Miller’s first solo exhibition in Spain, ‘In Dreams Begin Monsters’, takes place during Segovia’s Hay Festival. The exhibition's title is taken from one of the works on show, a large scale oil painting from Miller’s black and gold series. The painting shares themes with the large scale canvases of Penguin book covers which have brought the artist international acclaim.
The title of the exhibition is also a nod to The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters (1799), one of the ‘Los Caprichos’ etchings by Francisco Goya. Just as he has used it here, Miller frequently incorporates humour, satire and literary or art historical references into his work.
The Renaissance architecture of the Palacio Quinatar provides a unique setting for Miller’s work, which include oil paintings on wood, large scale engravings and copper sculptures.
The exhibition, curated by Cristina Carrillo de Albornoz, also seeks to explore Miller's career as a writer.
