Designed by Miró’s friend Josep Lluis Sert – the workshop, which is connected to his house – became the artist’s main studio in 1956, and was where he created most of his work until his death. The artistic venue will be re-opened with new content to further reflect the life and work of the pioneering Catalan artist and to show the studio exactly how it was before Miró passed away. The Miró Mallorca Foundació will also host a series of events and workshops throughout the year in celebration of the 25th anniversary:

Miró Mallorca Foundació to introduce new exhibition called ‘MIRÓ, a wild spirit’ (17 February 2018 – 2019)

MIRÓ, a wild spirit will be the latest Joan Miró exhibition to be featured at the Foundation. The new display will run from 17 February 2018 until the start of 2019 and will expose work produced by Joan

Miró in Mallorca during the most creative years of his career which occurred towards the end of his life (1956 – 1983). Divided into four complementary areas including roots, inspirations, vocabulary and metamorphis, the exhibition explores the factors which directly impacted on the artist’s work such as his trips to North America and Japan and clearly shows the motifs of women, birds, stars and personages, which he frequently worked with. www.miromallorca.com/es/exhibition/miro-espiritu-salvaje
