The Fundació Joan Miró presents Beehave, a project that draws on contemporary artists’ interest in honey bees and the key role these insects play in the planet’s environmental balance
Curated by Martina Millà, the Programming and Projects Director at the Fundació Joan Miró, Beehave begins at the museum with an exhibition based on immersive installations that invite visitors to connect with the world of these insects, with which we share an age-old bond. Beginning on 15 March, the project will venture beyond the museum with ten art interventions at different locations throughout the city, with the aim of sparking a citizen debate about the coexistence of humans and bees in urban settings. More than twenty artists of ten different nationalities are presenting close to sixty pieces in the Fundació and at fifteen locations in Barcelona. Most of these works have been produced specifically for the show and range from paintings to sculptures, photographs, videos, interventions, multimedia installations and performances. The project, developed in collaboration with the Banc Sabadell Foundation and with support from Torrons i Mel Alemany, the Institut de Cultura de Barcelona (ICUB) and Kunsthaus Baselland, will be travelling to this venue in Switzerland in September.
