MIA&D Fair | THE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR DEDICATED TO PHOTOGRAPHY AND DESIGN ART
MIA&D Fair, the photography and design art fair, conceived in Milan in 2011 by Fabio Castelli, was created with the aim of highlighting the transverse role that photography has come to play between the languages of expression of the contemporary art system. In 2014 Milan Image Art Fair looks to Singapore for its international expansion and announce its first edition in the new capital of art in the South Pacific from 23rd to 26th October 2014 during the 4th Singapore International Photography Festival. The Fair will be held at Marina Bay Sands, Exhibition Centre, where it will occupy a sprawling 3,500 square meters. In Singapore the fair will include the presence 50% – 50% of Asian and Western exhibitors and it is expected to attract up to 25.000 visitors.
In occasion of its first edition in Singapore , MIA Fair, will introduce a new Design section directly connected with photography.
We believe that Photography and Design Art, are both expressions of a deep contemporary artistic research.
In the last twenty years photography and design have spoken a similar language.
Photography represents today not anymore just a decorative medium, but it is considered one of the highest expression of contemporary art, in the same way Design Art is considered an expression of creativity and functionality that attracts collectors.
Singapore is the right platform where to launch MIA&D Fair as the country shows a deep interest and curiosity in international events, related to culture and arts.
During the month of October, Singapore will be the art hub of photography in Asia with MIA&D Fair and SIPF, providing visibility and international exposure for all the art players in photography and design.
