Apr 13th – 15th
miart is a fair that looks at the present in its multiple dimensions, such as the historical roots of today's experimentation. The dialogue between modern art, contemporary art and limited edition design, the most extensive chronological offer by an Italian art fair - with works ranging from the early 20th century to the most recent international experiences - and the ever-increasing quality of exhibitors and professionals from around the world, have turned the miart formula into a successful model, where the strength of the market aspects merges with the research components.
miart 2018 presents 186 international galleries (6% more than 2017; 61 out of the 186 participating in the fair for the first time, that is 32% of the total) representing a broad qualitative sweep of modern and contemporary art and limited edition design.
The number of foreign galleries participating in this year’s Milan fair has risen to 71 - 41% of the total - from 19 countries besides Italy (Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Great Britain, Greece, Hong Kong, Israel, Romania, Spain, South Africa, United States, Switzerland, Turkey, and Hungary).
miart is once again at the forefront of Milan Art Week and of the rich programme of events, openings and performances involving public institutions, private foundations and galleries, and non-profit spaces over the entire week of the fair. From Monday 9 April, every day will see inaugurations, openings and special visits to exhibitions and projects, such as (among others) Matt Mullican and Eva Kot’átková at Pirelli HangarBicocca, Post Zang Tumb Tuuum.
