Initially, the foundation's collection comprised the pieces donated by the artist himself. It has never stopped growing since then, receiving a noteworthy number of donations and deposits and developing an exceptional document collection. It is currently the primary source of reference material for Miró studies and for other organizations that wish to promote the artist's work.
In parallel with that, the Fundació Joan Miró has never faltered in one of its key aims: to offer a space in which to showcase young artists and current trends in art. Countless artists have shown their work at the foundation, maintaining our organization’s links with the present and keeping Miró's interest in new art forms alive.
