The Fundació Joan Miró presents its 2022 exhibition and activities programme.
Miró: the Most Intimate Legacy kicks off the 2022 exhibition programme in spring. The exhibition reconstructs Joan Miró’s collecting side through the works he kept or gave to his family, which in turn gave or loaned them to the Fundació Joan Miró in accordance with the artist’s wish to give a collection to Barcelona. In the autumn, the exhibition Paul Klee and the Secrets of Nature spotlights the German-Swiss artist’s ongoing fascination for observing nature and natural phenomena, in a project that forms part of an exchange agreements between two artist’s museums: the Fundació Joan Miró and the Zentrum Paul Klee in Berne. Espai 13, in turn, resumes its activities in January with the Dive and Immersion series, curated by the artist Pere Llobera. The Fundació Joan Miró is to use its holdings to take its projects beyond its own venues. Until January, the Museum of Art Pudong, Shanghai, presents the exhibition Joan Miró: Women, Birds, Stars, and from April this same project can be seen at the My Art Museum, Seoul.
The public and educational programme will combine physical options-both at the Fundació and in other locations-with online initiatives. The Miró at hand will go on adding digital resources in the form of small capsules to inspire, encourage creativity and approach the work of Joan Miró and museum activities in a different way.
The renovation of the rooms in the tower makes it possible to vary its uses and bring them closer to visitors. The Library specialises in Joan Miró and in the history of the institution. As for the reserve collection of drawings and documentation, this is moved to the octagonal room on the first floor, and has a place to display the artist’s preparatory work, allowing visitors to learn about Miró’s creative process. The project returns to the functions Miró and Sert envisaged for these rooms, and will offer visitors new experiences and services. It will also aid research, a task already reinforced with the recent creation of the Fundació Joan Miró - Universitat Pompeu Fabra chair.
