Abstract: The aim of this article is to show how, thanks to individual and social connections, exhibitions of artists of the international avant-garde were organized in Spain during the 1930s. As a case study, we will take Alexander Calder, who, with the mediation of Joan Miró (re)presented his Cirque Calder performance in Barcelona (organized by ADLAN, 1932, 1933) and Madrid (Residencia de Estudiantes, 1933). Calder's visit happened under the aegis of Miró, and Sebastià Gasch and Ramón Gómez de la Serna acted not only as critics of the reception of his work, but they also granted credence to his circus as an artistic endeavor. This article addresses the significance of international artists to the narrative of modern Spanish art through close personal links.
