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.
