Miró. His Most Intimate Legacy

Miró. His Most Intimate Legacy unveils a relatively unknown facet of Miró as a collector of his own work, which was expressed in the creation of three personal collections: his own; that of his wife Pilar; and the collection of his daughter Dolors. This project seeks to renders homage and express gratitude to the artist as well as to the three generations of the Miró family that have shown leadership in the universal artist’s commitment to the Fundació Joan Miró and the city of Barcelona.

The point of sculpture

The Point of Sculpture offers an overview of the practice of modern and contemporary sculpture from an asynchronous, heterogeneous perspective that also includes older pieces and anonymous objects. The exhibition, arising from the ambition of twentieth-century sculpture to move beyond representing and generating images, also aims to show the major transformation of this discipline in the twenty-first century with the implementation of new techniques and the emergence of new imaginaries and sensibilities.

Miró-ADLAN: An Archive of Modernity (1932-1936)

Miró-ADLAN: An Archive of Modernity (1932-1936) reconstructs the key role of the group of artists and intellectual known as ADLAN (Amics de l’Art Nou [Friends of New Art]) in introducing modernity to the Barcelona of the 1930s, during the years of the Spanish Republic. While in major European cities avant-garde movements had the support of critics and collectors, here modernity needed the impetus of an enthusiastic group that sought to regenerate Catalan culture and adopted Joan Miró as its leader in the promotion of new art.

Miró-Gaudí-Gomis

Miró always expressed his admiration for Gaudí’s work, valuing the architect’s penchant for risk and improvisation. The two artists viewed nature as the root of all their creative endeavours.

The exhibition features the Gaudí Series prints, which Miró produced as a tribute to the architect in 1979, and a selection of Miró’s sculptures which establish a dialogue with Joaquim Gomis’ photographs of Gaudí’s architecture.

Lina Bo Bardi Drawing

This exhibition is about the profound sense of connection that architect Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992) had with drawing. More than the tool of a designer, to her, drawing was a primary expressive means driven by a strong sense of curiosity and doubt. She never claimed drawing to be an independent artistic language, but she embraced it with artistic purpose. Drawing to her was both a noun and a verb, outcome and process, object and relationship.
