Exhibitions - Espai 13

The Espai 13 at the Fundació Joan Miró is an exhibition programme of emerging artistic and curatorial practices set up to meet Joan Miró's wish to create a space where new generations could present their work. Since its launch in 1978 in the foundation's Espai 10, 45 years ago, our programme of emerging art has built up an extensive background in promoting local, national and international talent. Over the years, Espai 13 has become an important turning point in the artistic and professional careers of many of its participants, for whom it has represented a major leap forwards in terms of their professionalisation and recognition within the art world.

Through the Espai 13, as an observatory and barometer of the evolution of emerging art, the curatorship of a season of four solo shows based on a theme connected with contemporary artistic practice is commissioned every year. For 2024, the appointed curator is Irina Mutt, who has been in charge of selecting the four participating artists and to conceive a programme based on the idea of interdependence. The art sector is an interwoven world that is sustained through the participation of many different people, both from the institution as well as from the side of production, discourse making and creation. The current programme focuses on this type of interconnected relations that are necessary for exhibitions to be created and art practices to reach the public.

Cycle: Explicit silence

The exploration of silence is a constant factor in contemporary art. Twentieth-century artists from Kasimir Malevich and Marcel Duchamp to Yves Klein and Gary Hill - plus a great many others - have exemplified silence, reduction, nothingness, pause, absence, disappearance, invisibility, emptiness, non-action and negation. Silence, however, is still an open space with a lot of artistic potential to be explored.

Cycle: Angle of vision: 143º

Objects in the rear view mirror are closer than they appearCurator: Montse BadiaOne of the principal features of present-day artistic proposals is that they raise more questions than they answer when it comes to the mechanisms needed to make us change, or at least question, our perception of things, our perception of the world in which we live and our perception of our own selves.
