Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “The Way Things Do” is on view at the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona through Sunday, October 1. The group exhibition, curated by Serafín Álvarez and Martina Millà, takes the seminal Fischli/Weiss film The Way Things Go (1985–87) “on the occasion of its thirtieth anniversary and places it in the hands of three artists born around the time it was produced, proposing an exercise around the notions of reception and perspective,” according to a press release. The show includes work by Cécile B. Evans, Daniel Jacoby & Yu Araki (in collaboration), and Serafín Álvarez, as well as a screening of The Way Things Go.
