MIA PHOTO FAIR 2017
Set to take place on March 10th – 13th, 2017 at The Mall, in the district of Porta Nuova in Milan, the seventh edition of MIA Photo Fair reconfirms its international vocation and its goal of offering a cultural program of the highest quality. The fair, directed by Fabio Castelli and Lorenza Castelli, saw the participation of 80 galleries from 13 different countries, plus an additional area dedicated to publishing.
This year’s new features include, for the first time ever, tree theme projects focusing on two different geographical areas: Focus Brazil, curated by Denise Gadelha, Focus Principate of Asturias, curated by Monica Alvarez Careaga and Focus Hungary curated by Art Photo Budapest, a section of Art Market Budapest.
Special interest will also be given to the subject of the performing arts, thanks to the participation of Flux Laboratory, a multidisciplinary experimental space whose aim is to encourage creative and performative work through encounters with the world of dance, art, philosophy, music and technology, and ArtOnTime, an itinerant curatorial project whose aim is to fund and launch artists in the performing arts through crowdfunding.
As every edition, the fair includes very interesting special projects. Kartell this year will be presenting a special exhibition design. The lounge area of the Fair, in fact, will be furnished with several pieces of the Kartell goes Sottsass collection and chairs and tables designed by Philippe Starck.
Tanja Solci, for the second time running, is in charge of the design and art direction of the event’s graphic image, which this year will be characterised by a new concept and new colours.
