CODICE MIA has become a landmark event for the mid-career artists who aspire to establish a connection with international experts of collecting. Following a rigorous selection, 45 photographers will have the privilege of meeting face to face collectors, art advisor and curators of corporate and institutional collections from around the world.

The meetings have the typical form of a portfolio review, but innovative and unique is the choice of interlocutors. The reviewers are experts of the fine-art photography market, those who decide for their own private collection or for corporate and museum collection.

Conceived and organised by Enrica Viganò, CODICE MIA project has had overwhelmingly positive reviews from both participating artists and reviewers. For collectors the chance to discover artists, acquire works, support projects and endorse photographers it is really exciting. And for the artists the opportunity to exchange ideas and information with major personalities in the photography market is definitely an advantage hard to get otherwise.
