The Fundació Joan Miró was created by the artist Joan Miró, initially mainly with artworks from his own private collection, with the aim of establishing an internationally recognized center for scholarships and contemporary art research in Barcelona.
The Fundació opened to the public on 10 June 1975 and has since become a vibrant hub where Joan Miró ’s work coexists with state-of-the-art contemporary art.
Through an interdisciplinary approach, the Fundació organizes temporary exhibits of 20th and 21st-century artists as well as research programs and initiatives in cooperation with other institutions and organizations.
With its exhibition and educational programs, the Fundació Joan Miró explores lines of research related to Miró’s work and contemporary art.
The Fundació is situated in a building designed by Josep Lluís Sert, making it one of the few museums in the world where the collaboration between the artist and the architect underpins a connection between the works and the room in which they are housed.
The Fundació provides an overview of the landscapes of Joan Miró’s art and life, establishing an enriching conversation with other artists from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Joan Miró was born in Barcelona in 1893, but the emotional landscapes that influenced him as an individual and an artist were primarily those of Mont-roig, Paris and Majorca, and later those of New York and Japan.
His connection with the land and his interest in everyday objects and the natural environment formed the basis of some of his scientific and formal work. Miró avoided academicism in his constant quest for pure, global art that could not be classified under any particular movement.
Self-contained in his manners and public gestures, it is through art that Joan Miró has displayed his rebelliousness and deep attention to the political and social activities around him. These conflicting forces led him to create a unique and extremely personal language that made him one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
