Miart - the international modern and contemporary art fair in Milan - is the exhibition that presents the widest chronological offer in Italy, offering a wide audience of Italian and international collectors the opportunity to discover masterpieces from the early twentieth century to the creations of the latest generations.
The goal for next edition is to start a new phase: the first movement of a possible, brand new symphony. The first movement is not only the beginning of a multi-part musical form, but also a desire for acceleration for an industry that today, after the positive autumn season of international fairs, feels ready to lengthen its stride and take a leap forward.
The main section of miart will host - for the very first time together - galleries who present contemporary art in its strictest interpretation as well as galleries presenting works produced before the year 2000, in a selection ranging from the masters of modern art to the most recent new creations. In this section, miart will also be accepting applications from galleries in the field of collectible design, with special emphasis on the relationship between the visual and applied arts and on the design-oriented nature of exhibits. ALL applying galleries will be scrutinised by the selection committee and ALL the proposed projects will then be approved and eventually edited by a dedicated team of curators with the goal of presenting a coherent and orderly mix, promoting dialogue between galleries and between iconic artists and/or new talents, honouring tradition while looking boldly to the future.
