Exhibitions - Espai 13

The Espai 13 of the Fundació Joan Miró is an exhibition programme of emerging artistic and curatorial practices set up to meet Joan Miró's desire to create a space where new generations could present their work. Since its launch in 1978 in the foundation's Espai 10, our programme of emerging art has built up an extensive background in promoting local, national and international talent. Over the years, Espai 13 has become a veritable turning point in the artistic and professional careers of many of its participants, for whom it has represented a major leap forwards in terms of their professionalisation and recognition within the art world.

Through the Espai 13, as an observatory and barometer of the evolution of emerging art, the curatorship of a season of four solo shows based on a theme connected with contemporary artistic practice is commissioned every year. In 2023, the Yaby duo of curators was entrusted with the selection of the participating artists based on a commission to develop a season around the role of reading and its devices in their practice. What texts are the artists reading? And what is their approach and attitude as they do so? How are they deconstructing the written word as a cultural construct and the canon of literature and theory?

A Monster Who Tells the Truth

The artists featured in this series question and push at the boundaries between disciplines in order to reflect on the dynamics of power that affect knowledge. Thus, art is presented as a powerful monster capable of pointing to the weak points in these boundaries: a monster who tells the truth or, at the very least, who points to the person telling it.

Cycle: Explicit silence

The exploration of silence is a constant factor in contemporary art. Twentieth-century artists from Kasimir Malevich and Marcel Duchamp to Yves Klein and Gary Hill - plus a great many others - have exemplified silence, reduction, nothingness, pause, absence, disappearance, invisibility, emptiness, non-action and negation. Silence, however, is still an open space with a lot of artistic potential to be explored.
