miart is a fair in which modern and contemporary art communicate constant references with explicit echoes; it affords a situation to grasp links between the past and present. miart will emphasize this aspect aspiring to work on the possibility of testing institutional strategies that differ from existing models, the aim being to set out along a path in which miart plays an active role in modern and contemporary production throughout the entire year, not just during the days of the art fair. 

Piazza Duomo, Milano - Andrea Gnocchi

In this way, miart will turn into a recipient of contexts, nurturing structures and varied experiences that connect the cultural and economic fabric of Milan to leading international organizations. The sections of the fair and parallel events will be held with principal focus on the “crossing” of different disciplines, with the desire being to intercept the public from other areas. The goal is to find a suitable area in the field of communication between knowledge and a place of “trade” that is also a place for a real cultural experience, based on the theory of “the Economics of Experiences,” in which the production of goods and services is no longer sufficient, and the “experiences” offered become the basis of value creation.

Sections

Established
Presents international galleries that have been promoting modern and contemporary art for several years.

Emergent
Dedicated to young, avant-garde galleries with recognized activities in experimental artistic research.

THENnow
An invitational section, a face-off between an artist from an “older” generation and artist coming from a younger one.

Object
Galleries that promote contemporary design objects originally conceived as limited editions, but that are framed or contextualized as works of art.

Special Project: Conflux
Conflux is a newly created platform of the miart fair exhibiting site-specific, solo or 2 artist projects and installations by international contemporary artists represented by renowned galleries from Latin American, United States, the Middle East and Europe.
