The Miró Mallorca Foundation wishes to promote art projects related to the Joan Miró’s Printmaking Workshops located in the 18th-century country house known as Son Boter, fitted out by the artist himself as art workshops and which have now become one of the distinguishing features of the institution.

To this end, the Foundation summons, on a biennial basis, the Pilar Juncosa Edition Award, endowed with 10.000€ and the Artistic Creation Award endowed with 20.000€. They are the two prizes with greater economic endowment of the Foundation’s awards programme. The art project must be related to multiple or serially produced art in all its possible forms (sculpture, ceramics, video, photography, graphic art, etc.), which can be carried out, totally or partially, at the Joan Miró Printmaking Workshops.

Once the project has been completed, the artist must donate a full example of the work and/or a documented report on the production process to the Fundació for its incorporation in the latter’s art collection and archives. The Fundació will negotiate the donation with each artist, depending on the work in question.

Our aim is to offer visitors the chance to see art projects by gifted artists while also highlighting Joan Miró’s ties with a broad spectrum of contemporary artistic sensibilities. The Fundació wishes to support and promote the winning artist, allowing them to benefit from the worldwide prestige associated with Joan Miró’s art and the international recognition that this represents.

 


Pilar Juncosa & Sotheby’s Biennal Award for Artistic Creation 2021

The Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró a Mallorca wishes to promote art projects associated with Joan Miró’s printmaking studios. These are located in an 18th-century country house called Son Boter, equipped by the artist himself for use as art studios and now considered to be one of the Fundació’s distinguishing features.

Our aim is to offer visitors the chance to see art projects by gifted artists while also highlighting Joan Miró’s ties with a broad spectrum of contemporary artistic sensibilities.

The Fundació wishes to support and promote the winning artist, allowing them to benefit from the worldwide prestige associated with Joan Miró’s art and the international recognition that this represents.

To this end, the Pilar Juncosa & Sotheby’s Award is granted every two years for the creation of an art project leading to the production of multiples or editions in all their possible forms (sculptures, ceramics, video, photography, graphic art, etc.) to be carried out totally or partly in Joan Miró’s printmaking studios.

The jury will be made up of different experts in the field of art editions: one person appointed by Sotheby’s, four experts not associated with the Fundació, and three members of the Fundació, whose Director will have the deciding vote if required.

The award, worth a total of €20,000, shall be divided as follows: €6,000 as a prize for the artist and the rest for the creation and exhibition of the project, paid as per the conditions established in the Payments section.

Once the project has been completed, the artist must donate a full example of the work and/or a documented report on the production process to the Fundació for its incorporation in the latter’s art collection and archives. The Fundació will negotiate the donation with each artist, depending on the work in question.

The jury will set a high value on proposals for projects that stand out for their quality and capacity for experimentation and innovation. The clarity of the outlined proposal will also be taken into account, as well as the financial feasibility of the work’s creation and maintenance.
