Visit: Fundacio Joan Miro, Parc de Montjuic, s/n, 08038 Barcelona Spain
The Fundació Joan Miró is a living center, open to the world, where you can discover and explore the work of Joan Miró and other artists. With your skip-the-line admission, you can avoid the ticket queue to get inside the building, a cultural icon of Barcelona, located in the green zone of Parc de Montjuïc.
Described by Miró as “an open, radiant architecture focused on the vision of art and the contemplation of nature: a garden for everybody,” the museum is a space where the boundaries between art, architecture, and landscape blur. The collection on display offers an overview of the different stages of Miró’s oeuvre and the different media that he worked with in the course of his career. It is one of the most comprehensive collections of his work anywhere in the world.
“What counts is not the work itself, but the course of one's spirit throughout one's entire life.” –Joan Miró
Miró's contact with avant-garde movements, his links to surrealism, and the influence of poetry led him to develop a unique, intensely personal language through which he expressed his vision of the world. With his tireless spirit of inquiry, he transcended conventional painting and became one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
In addition to the collection, the Fundació Joan Miró organizes temporary shows, exhibitions of the work of emerging artists at Espai 13, and activities for audiences of all ages.
