About
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.

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.

miart è una fiera in cui moderno e contemporaneo dialogano con continui rimandi o con echi più o meno espliciti: un’occasione per riflettere sulla continuità fra passato e presente.

miart vuole sottolineare ancora di più questo aspetto e allo stesso tempo lavorare sulla possibilità di sperimentare strategie istituzionali alternative a quelle consuete. L’obiettivo è quello di iniziare un percorso che porti miart ad essere attiva nella produzione moderna e contemporanea durante tutto l’anno e non solo nei tre giorni dell’evento fieristico.

miart diventa un collettore di ambiti, strutture ed esperienze variegate in grado, da una parte, di connettere tra loro le specificità che esistono nel tessuto culturale ed economico di Milano, dall’altro, di incubare importanti realtà internazionali. Le sezioni della fiera e gli eventi in città si basano su un principio di “attraversamento” di discipline diverse con il desiderio di intercettare pubblici provenienti anche da altri ambiti per definire nel campo dell’arte un luogo idoneo alla comunicazione tra i saperi, un luogo di “scambi” oltre che un’esperienza culturale sulla base della teoria de “L’Economia delle Esperienze” in cui la produzione di beni e servizi non è più sufficiente, ma sono le “esperienze” offerte a costituire il fondamento della creazione di valore.
