The Fundació Joan Miró and the "la Caixa" Foundation present The Tapestries of Joan Miró. From the Thread to the World
The documentary The Tapestries of Joan Miró. From the Thread to the World was presented at the Fundació Joan Miró today. Elisa Durán, Deputy General Manager of the "la Caixa" Foundation, and Marko Daniel, Director of the Fundació Joan Miró, presented the new era of collaboration between the two institutions, the aim of which is to spread culture based on the Fundació Joan Miró’s collection and exhibition and research projects. This is the first of three audio-visual projects resulting from a new era of collaboration between the two institutions.
The Tapestries of Joan Miró. From the Thread to the World is a documentary about Miró’s large tapestries, which begins with the restoration of the "la Caixa" Foundation tapestry carried out between March and April 2022. The film, developed by the producer BAS and directed by Anna Sanmartí, follows the research project on which both foundations collaborated to expand knowledge of the conservation of these emblematic works made by Miró and Josep Royo.
CaixaForum+ will premiere this documentary tomorrow. In the first half of 2023, two new joint productions by the two institutions will be released on the Fundació Joan Miró’s channel on the "la Caixa" Foundation platform. The first, Intimate Miró, is a film directed by Meritxell Colell and Jordi Morató that delves into the most personal facet of the artist. It does so by looking at the collections of work that he created for his family, which are the foundations of the collection preserved by the Fundació Joan Miró. The second is a documentary series directed by Niccolò Bruna that follows the move of the Fundació Joan Miró Archives from the extension spaces designed by Jaume Freixa to the original spaces conceived by Miró and Sert.
