Joan Miró's printmaking workshops 2019
"We believe that, in their approach to contemporary creation, artists should take advantage of all the resources that society crates so as to find the tool that best suites each individual's own personal language"
The Fundació Miró Mallorca was founded following the donation by Joan Miró and his family to the city of Palma, in 1981 of four creative workshops where he had worked intensily, from 1956 until his death, so that they could become a stimulus for future generations of artists. Miró expressed a desire for the spirit of creativity and transgression to live on after his dead, and with Son Boter. The workshops have conserved that desired to act as springboard for experimentation in a wide diversity of artistic fields.
Year after year, in this privileged setting, young artist and other more established ones carry out project, exchange ideas and share their creative experiences. Fundació Miró Mallorca has enabled numerous artists to work in its engraving, lithography, silkscreen and ceramics workshops. In the last years it has opened its doors to new technologies and incorporated digital printing systems. Additionally, by making Pilar Juncosa & Sotheby’s Grants and Awards widely known to people internationally, this has helped convert our workshops into a meeting place for young artists from all over the world as well as facilitating stays and experiences abroad.
The goal that has characterized all these years of constant effort, wich we will still propose today is a careful balance between memory and innovation: that is, a respect for traditional techniques in conjunction with an intense desire for contemporaneity.
