The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation Signs an Agreement for the Promotion and Dissemination of the Spanish culture with Abertis and the Fundació Joan Miró
20/12/2018

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation, represented by Minister Josep Borrell; the company Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A., the Abertis Foundation and the Fundació Joan Miró, represented by their corresponding administrations, have today signed an agreement for the promotion and dissemination of Spanish culture and, more generally, for the dissemination and promotion of Spain overseas through the network of Embassies and Consulates of Spain.

Joan Miró’s works and legacy are one of the main references of the Spanish culture. The signatory parties agree on the joint organisation of an exhibition project titled “Universo Miró”, consisting of three original paintings and two original sculptures of the artist on loan from the Fundació Joan Miró, which will be placed on display at several diplomatic and consular representations of Spain throughout 2019 and 2020. The exhibition tour will start at the Representations of Spain in Rome, Berlin, Dublin, Brussels and Paris, and it will then continue with visits to other embassies and consulates. A Monitoring Committee will establish the dates, duration and related logistics.

It is important to emphasise that this project involves the sharing of resources from private and public companies and foundations with a common goal. Promotional activities in the countries visited will be geared towards different audiences in line with the interests of the signatory parties, including educational activities among local school communities.
