On June 10, 1975 the Joan Miró Foundation first opened its doors with the aim of becoming the centre to look to for the works of the Catalan artist, and at the same time, carrying out Miró's wishes, it would serve as a place that promotes and educates the public on contemporary art.
To mark its 40th anniversary, the Foundation is opening its doors to the public for free with something for everyone. From 5pm to 7pm is family time, with activities dedicated to kids. Then it's time for friends to get together from 7pm to 9pm for music, dance and street art, as the Foundation puts an emphasis on its long and happy friendship with the city and its inhabitants. From 9pm to 11pm, the day comes to a rousing finish with a dance performance from the Brodas Bros, and the R&B of Flamingo Tours.
Parallel to these goings-on, from 5pm to 11pm you can also visit both the permanent and temporary collections, including the 'making of' photography exhibition the Foundation did for Sert, and the screening of the documentary 'Josep Lluís Sert. A Nomadic Dream'.
