May 13th – 15th | Superstudio Più, Milan
MIA Photo Fair, the first international art fair dedicated to photography and moving image, inaugurates its first edition at the exhibition space Superstudio Più, Via Tortona in Milan.
The results achieved for its first edition are the following: 15.000 visitors in 4 days; 230 exhibitors (galleries, artists, training institutes, specialized publishers and bookstores) from over 20 countries and over 800 accredited journalists.
For the first time, in a contemporary art fair, a section dedicated to artists without a gallery is established: thanks to the section “Proposta MIA”, new authors have the possibility to present their projects to the market with the goal of opening new collaborations with galleries.
The opportunity to meet the artists at the fair, a condition strongly advocated by the organization, was the element that favored education on photography and the appreciation for MIA Photo Fair.
Thanks to the Sponsors Lavazza and Ferrarelle: their support not only confirms their interest in the development of contemporary art in Italy, but also has allowed to give different awards to some of the participants of the fair.
