April 11th – 13th | The Mall, Milan
Strong from the success achieved in 2015, for its sixth edition, MIA Photo Fair chooses to extend its opening time, welcoming the audience from Thursday and continuing until Monday.
Extremely positive balance for this sixth edition, which is archived with a good audience response, so that the number of visitors grows by 10% compared to the record date of 2015 (reaching 24.000 attendance).
Confirmed the canonical format of the fair, the main sponsor BNL – BNP Paribas and Lavazza Group, the sponsor Eberhard&Co and the sponsors of past editions, MIA Photo Fair closes this edition’s balance with very high numbers: 80 galleries from 13 different countries of the world with 230 artists exhibited in 109 stands, 16 specialized editors and 16 independent artists.
Among the most interesting novelties of this sixth edition is the establishment of the award named after “Massimo Gatti”, won by photographer Massimo Sestini, considered the most interesting among those who presented themselves in an independent form in the section “Proposta MIA”, who has received a prize in cash and set up a personal show in the spaces of the same Cavaciuti Gallery in Milan.
The public interest for the proposals of the cultural program was great: from the interviews by Sabrina Donadel with some couples of important collectors to Patricia Urquiola’s contribution about the relationship between photography and design.
