Restoration of the Tapestry of the Fundació

A project in collaboration with the Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona

The Fundació Joan Miró has developed a project to restore the large Tapestry of the Fundació, in accordance with one of the express wishes of Joan Miró, whereby visitors will have the opportunity to view both sides of the tapestry while it is being restored. This will also ensure that it is preserved in the best possible condition. 

This emblematic work was created in 1979, the fruit of a close collaboration between Joan Miró and the textile artisan Josep Royo. It is a very large tapestry, weighing approximately one tonne, and made of jute, hemp, cotton and wool. It has been on display for the last four decades and has become one of the Fundació’s most iconic works.

Within the framework of this restoration project, the Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona will sponsor a charity dinner to mark its centenary. This event will take place at the Fundació Joan Miró on 27 September 2018. The menu will be designed by the chef Nandu Jubany.

In order to help fund this restoration, we invite you to make a donation of 1.000 euros and to join us at the charity dinner.
