The Juan March Foundation is a family, patrimonial and operative institution created in 1955 by the financier Juan March Ordinas with the purpose of promoting the humanistic and scientific culture in Spain. Its history and its institutional model, guaranteeing the autonomy of its operation, help to concretise its mission in a defined plan of activities, that attend at any moment to the changing social needs and that at present are organized through own programs developed in its Three sites, designed in the long term, always free access and with no other commitment than the quality of the cultural offer and the benefit of the community it serves. The Foundation produces exhibitions and cycles of concerts and conferences. Its headquarters in Madrid houses a library of contemporary Spanish music and theater. He is the owner of the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art, Cuenca, and the Juan March Foundation Museum, Palma de Mallorca. His Center for Advanced Studies in Social Sciences, where he has doctored about one hundred Spanish students, is now integrated in the Carlos III / Juan March Institute of Social Sciences, Carlos III University of Madrid. Located in a central area of Madrid, the headquarters building of the Fundación Juan March was inaugurated in 1975. The project and its decoration, whose total built area is 18,000 square meters, and 1,700 garden, are due to the Spanish architect José Luis Picardo. Conceived as a modern cultural center, it has two function rooms, with simultaneous translation, closed circuit television, exhibition halls, libraries and a room for scientific colloquia. A large mural, 50 square meters, occupies the wall at the bottom of the entrance hall to the two function rooms. It is an allegory of Laocoon, the trojan priest who died strangled by snakes, the work of the Spanish artist Joaquín Vaquero Turcios. A collection of paintings and sculptures by various Spanish artists is exhibited in the gardens and interior of the Foundation. In 2009 a renovation of the spaces dedicated to exhibitions and rearrangement of the ground floor, made by the architects Juan González de las Cuevas and Aurora Herrera, was carried out. The art program includes the conception and presentation of exhibitions understood as the public results of curatorial research processes. In the last decade, we have combined thesis samples or those dedicated to historically lesser-known artists and movements with the reflective cultivation of a tradition of monographic exhibitions of key figures of modernity - in many of these cases first presented in Spain - Which began in 1973. Many of the samples are complemented by courses, conferences and concerts. The Foundation publishes catalogs and other publications in Spanish and English of its exhibitions and the collections of its collection of contemporary Spanish art, comprising more than 1,600 works by Spanish artists, displayed in slow rotation in the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art Cuenca (created in 1966 by Fernando Zobel and directed by the Foundation since 1981), and the Museu Fundación Juan March de Palma (created in 1994). For its work in the field of art, the Foundation has received, among others, the Medal of Honor of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando (1976), the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts, delivered by the King Of Spain (1980) and the Prize for the Collection of the Art and Patronage Foundation (2014). The music program materializes in almost a daily concert, up to a total of approximately 150 each season, with a wide spectrum of styles, formations and chronologies. These concerts - mostly available through the March channel, live and deferred - are articulated in cycles around themes, concepts or perspectives, with the aim of inducing new ways of listening and creating distinctive aesthetic and intellectual experiences . This mission involves a musical programming that explores staging and combinations of unusual works and composers. Along with the concert activity of a chamber hall, the Foundation organizes didactic concerts, enriched with different teaching materials and produces operas, Melodramas and other genres of musical theater of small format. Several of his concerts are also broadcast by Radio Clásica, by RNE, and by Catalunya Música. The program of conferences is articulated in cycles dedicated to philosophy, poetry, narrative, Latin American creation, theater and cinema. These cycles alternate the traditional conference format along with the genres of the interview (Conversations in the Foundation, Memories of the Foundation) and the debate (The pulsing question). All our cycles are available for free listening on our website and podcast format for mobile devices. Many of the lectures are videotaped, also available on the march channel. The conference activity is complemented by the publication of the collection of biographies "Spanish eminent"
