    Beehave

    Beehave is an exhibition project that reflects contemporary artists' growing interest in the survival crisis affecting honey bees and many other insect pollinators.

    The exhibition at the Fundació Joan Miró will include a series of newly-produced installations that will invite visitors to approach a variety of aspects of the cognitive world of bees while providing them with transformative immersive experiences. The show will also include a room with pieces by the artists responsible for the urban interventions.

    From March 15th to June 17th, Beehave will also unfold throughout Barcelona with actions aimed at raising citizen awareness concerning the important role that honey bees play in preserving biodiversity, on which the endangered balance of our planet's ecosystems depends.

  • Itō Shinsui. Tradition and modernity

    Itō Shinsui. Tradition and modernity

    There is a very traditional art in Japan called ukiyo-e. It involved a universe of images of the floating world, full of courtesans, samurais, geishas and Japanese theater actors, known as kabuki. With the arrival of industrialization at the end of the 19th century and western influence, ukiyo-e was at risk. Therefore, at the beginning of the 20th century, a movement was formed led by artists and editors called shin hanga, which proposed to revive ujkiyo-e. Now the Fundació Miró is paying tribute to the work of one of the greatest representatives of shin hanga, Itō Shinsu (1898-1972), who is characterized by seeking new perspectives in old images. A conceptual awareness that is undoubtedly shared with Joan Mirá.

    Kader Attia. Scars remind us that our past is real

    The Franco-Algerian artist, Kader Attia, was winner of the latest edition of the Joan Miró Award. This award, given by the Fundació Joan Miró and the Obra Social "la Caixa", acknowledges artists who stand out for their spirit of research, innovation, commitment and freedom that characterizes the life and work of Joan Miró. Attia has personally selected the works for this exhibition, which focus on the notion of reparation. According to the artist, the West has covered up the marks of tragic episodes of a common past, which does not help to heal the deepest wounds. His pieces show the disparity and unequal relations in areas of cultural friction.
