Evolution of the stage

The staging for the Awards Ceremony has evolved over the years. The latest changes were made in 2021, when work was carried out to reorder, update and enhance the visual elements that act as signs of identity of the ceremony itself. Moreover, one of the considerations when manufacturing the materials employed was to produce the least possible environmental impact.

Sculpture

What does the sculpture represent?

The sculpture symbolizes the triumph of the most exalted human values, represented by the recurrent elements of Miró's iconography.

Artist: Joan Miró

Barcelona 1893 - Palma de Mallorca 1983

Joan Miró is considered one of the leading artists of the 20th century. He experimented with different styles such as fauvism and cubism in his early works. In the 1920s, he moved to Paris, where he became friends with Picasso and was decisively influenced by the Surrealist writers, a concept he subsequently applied to painting. His work evolved, with shapes and figures gradually being reduced to points, lines and abundant expressions of colour that represent his classic iconographic repertory: women, birds, stars, the sun... and so on. In the late 1950s, he began a series of large murals and turned his artistic gaze first towards ceramics and subsequently towards sculpture, with which he once again garnered international recognition, with successive shows in Paris, New York, London, Tokyo and Barcelona. His work can nowadays be found in the world's major art galleries.

Why is the sculpture not presented to the laureates at the Awards Ceremony?

The sculpture weighs more than six kilograms, which is the reason why it is subsequently sent to each respective laureate.

Where is it made?

At the Parellada Foundry in Barcelona, at the express wish of Joan Miró.
