miart 2021

 

miart – Milan’s international modern and contemporary art fair – presents its 25th edition, which is set to take place both physically and virtually, honoring tradition while looking boldly into the future.

 

Inspiration and title of the event are taken from Charles Simic's 1971 collection of poems, Dismantling the silence, with the sincere hope that miart will also contribute to filling the cultural void caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

miart sections

Established Masters

miart's established art section attracts galleries that present works produced before 1999, in a selection ranging from the masters of modern art to twentieth century artists currently enjoying a revival of interest. The section excludes works produced after 1999 with the exception of recent works by historically recognised artists. Starting from the 2020 edition, miart will also be accepting applications for this section from galleries in the field of collector and famous name designs, with special emphasis on the relationship between the visual and applied arts and on the design-oriented nature of exhibits.

Curated by:
Alberto Salvadori, Director, ICA, Milan

Established Contemporary

The main section of miart dedicated to contemporary art attracts galleries who present contemporary art in its strictest interpretation, from modern classics to the most recent new creations. Starting from the 2020 edition, miart will also be accepting applications for this section from galleries in the field of collector and famous name designs, with special emphasis on the relationship between the visual and applied arts and on the design-oriented nature of exhibits.


Generations

Section in which two galleries are invited to create a dialogue between two artists belonging to two different generations. The two galleries will share the same stand and will collaborate on a single exhibition project. One gallery may also represent both artists.

Decades

A section that explores the history of the 20th century, divided by decades. Each booth, through a monographic or thematic exhibition, presents a key moment of the period in question, in a succession of projects dating from the 1910s to the 1990s.
