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.

The jury

The jury is made up of different experts in the area of serially produced art: one person appointed by Sotheby’s, an expert not associated with the institution and three members of the Fundació Miró Mallorca, whose Director will have the deciding vote, should this be required.

The jury will value those proposals that stand out for their quality and capacity for experimentation and innovation. The expository clarity of the proposed solution will also be taken into account, as well as the financial feasibility of producing and conserving the work’s creation and maintenance.
