PILAR JUNCOSA BIENNIAL PRINTMAKING AWARD 2020
Fundació Miró Mallorca holds the Pilar Juncosa Printmaking Award on a biennial basis, with funding of €10,000.

This edition aims to promote both the winning artist and Joan Miró’s printmaking studios, set up by the artist in Son Boter, an 18th century house, to provide further artistic space. Today, the printmaking studies are one of the Foundation’s distinctive hallmarks. The winning project must be created within a maximum of one year from notification of the jury’s final decision. It shall be printed in Fundació Miró Mallorca’s printmaking studios and the number of copies to be printed shall be agreed upon and divided into two equal parts, one set for the Foundation and one for the artist.
