    “Endgame: Duchamp, Chess, and the Avant-Garde” was a temporary exhibition that took place at Barcelona’s Fundació Joan Miró between October 2016 and January 2017. It was curated by Manuel Segade, explored the history of modern art through the lens of its relationship to chess, and featured a variety of works by 20th century artist. These included Marcel Duchamp’s La Partie d’échecs, Max Ernst’s Chess Set, and Mercè Rodoreda’s Untitled (Composition IX), amongst many others. Fundació Joan Miró commissioned Spanish graphic design studio Hey to develop a visual identity for the exhibition. This linked a variety of printed materials, from large format posters, banners and indoor signage to opening night invitations and a programme set in four languages.
