The Fundació Joan Miró (Joan Miró Foundation) exists to promote awareness of the work and personality of Joan Miró and to present exhibitions of artists from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries: an open door to the exchange of ideas and disciplines that, while always looking to the future, has both international prestige and deep roots in Catalonia.
The Fundació is located in an exceptional building designed by the architect Josep Lluís Sert. It stands in the Parc de Montjuïc, enjoying magnificent views over Barcelona, and houses the world’s largest public collection of Joan Miró paintings.
After forty years of existence, the Fundació Joan Miró (Joan Miró Foundation) is an essential point of reference for the study of Miró’s work.
Having established itself internationally as a major art institution, the Foundation also organises temporary exhibitions on all aspects of modern and contemporary art. In recent years it has put on shows devoted to Chillida, Giacometti, Warhol, Calder, Magritte, Rothko… More experimental works by younger artists have their own special area in the Espai 13, a pioneer of its kind in Barcelona.
This exhibition is about the profound sense of connection that architect Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992) had with drawing. More than the design tool of a designer, to her, drawing was a primary expressive means driven by a strong sense of curiosity and doubt.
She never claimed drawing to be an independent artistic language, but she embraced it with artistic purpose. Drawing to her was both a noun and a verb, outcome and process, object and relationship.
