The Miró at Hand

Anywhere, anytime, capsules of inspiration and creativity available to all

The Miró at Hand is a set of resources presented as small capsules made available to everyone, with the idea of inspiring us, encouraging creativity and drawing us closer to the work of Miró.

The Miró goes wherever we happen to be, helping us get a better idea of its architecture and context, as well as illuminating contemporary creation and the life and work of Joan Miró. The spaces of the foundation and limits between disciplines are diluted. This is why you can enjoy these proposals on Miró, action art or the online activities for families in an open, flexible manner. The Miró is in your hands, it adapts to your pace.

My Miró

My Miró is a collection of video recordings made by members of the team, Friends of the Miró and collaborators, all of whom explain "their Miró". These anonymous readings have no academic or formalist biases, as they are made by non-experts. They invite museum visitors to make Miró their own, and to take what they find into a personal realm. So what’s "your Miró"? Share it on social media with the hashtag #myMiró

Art in action

Performance and action art have had an ongoing presence in the foundation’s programming. From the Jordi Benito action in 1979 to more recent performances at the Espai 13, or the 2020 erasure performance by Nalini Malani, action, the body, voice and communicative gesture have reflected the evolution of artistic language as well as the institution’s commitment to make a home for all artistic expressions. Quite beyond their expressive value in any given moment, we seek to revive some of the actions that have been made over the years at the Miró. We seek to encourage a diachronic gaze with a perspective on the changes that have taken place in the performance genre, trusting that this way of seeing might even set out a vision of the future for us.

A pochoir exhibition at home

Coinciding with the exhibition Miró-ADLAN. An Archive of Modernity (1932-1936), we want to offer you a special Creative Families activity based on the works that Miró made with a pochoir or stencil technique. We also encourage you to set up your own little exhibition at home (in the entrance, the dining room or in a bedroom, for example), design an invitation, and invite whoever you want to come and see it.

Let's make an ephemeral mural

Have you ever drawn, painted or done a collage on a wall, and it stayed there forever? How about on a large piece of paper that was hung on the wall for a few days? If you did this, then you have done a mural, either permanent or ephemeral. Now we invite you to create a mural using a piece of cloth, as if it were a large wall.

A world of textures

What are textures? When we see and touch a tree trunk, the surface of a street, a wall, a piece of wood, a rock, a basket or a bag, we realise they all have something different about them. With this activity you can create a landscape inhabited by strange characters with different textures.

Shared Memories

Shared Memories is an activity proposal for seniors and for those family members or care home staff accompanying them. The starting point is a series of photographic images by Joaquim Gomis from the 1940s to the 1960s, which evoke specific times and moments in creating an oral narrative charged with anecdotes and recollections. The related audio recordings can be heard on the YouTube channel of the Fundació.
