Joan Miró Prize

In recognition of exploration, innovation, commitment and freedom in present-day artistic work

Kader Attia. 2017 Joan Miró Prize

The Joan Miró Prize is awarded every two years by the Fundació Joan Miró and Obra Social "la Caixa", in recognition of present-day work by artists who show the same spirit of exploration, innovation, commitment and freedom that characterised Joan Miró's life and work. First awarded in 2007, the prize is conferred by an international panel of judges made up of acclaimed professionals in the field of contemporary creation. "la Caixa" Foundation provides the cash prize of €70,000 and covers the cost of producing a monographic exhibition of the work by the winning artist, to be held at Fundació Joan Miró. At the award ceremony, the winning artist receives a diploma and a trophy, designed by André Ricard.
