Barcelona (ACN).- This Friday, Barcelona’s Joan Miró Foundation announced the program for the 2013-2014 season of the museum of modern art that honours Catalan artist Joan Miró. ‘Art in Public Space’ is the provisional title of the exhibition that is scheduled to take place between January and July of 2014. The project will bring together sketches, preparatory paintings, models, photographs and videos that form part of the background of Miró’s work that has been placed in public areas. This Friday, the Director of the Foundation, Rosa Maria Malet, highlighted some of the forthcoming exhibitions that will take place in the museum. ‘Before the Horizon’ will run between this October and until February 2014 and will explore the use of the horizon as a recurring element in the history of modern painting. The new season will also include the exhibition ‘A place where artists have the right to fail. Stories of Espai 10 and Espai 13 at the Fundació Joan Miró’. This will explore the  history of space which has been used to present young emerging artists for the past 30 years. 


In addition to these two exhibitions, the Foundation will also host a temporary exhibition of American artist Roni Horn, who this year was awarded the Joan Miró prize. This display of his work will take place between the 19th of June and the 28th of September 2014.
