The nineteenth edition of miart, scheduled for 28 to 30 March, opens at Fieramilanocity – Pav 3 Gate 5, Viale Scarampo, Milan.

This year’s edition features 148 international galleries representing twenty countries. miart has established itself as a preeminent art fair in which modern and contemporary art communicate constant references with explicit echoes: a great opportunity to grasp links between the past and present.

Here is the list of exhibitors of the four sections of the fair: www.miart.it/en/exhibitors

miart’s artistic director Vincenzo de Bellis and his team are developing an artistic vision, through programming for the fair and for the city. The Spring Awakening is a program of events, openings and special visit hours in Milan, in public institutions, foundations and private galleries, starting on the spring equinox and continuing through the final day of the fair.

With this initiative, miart 2014 sets out to renew and expand the close cooperation with public and private realities of the city of Milan, offering the public and sector professionals a wide-ranging cultural experience that engages the whole city during the week of the fair.

Highlights of the program are Piero Manzoni, Palazzo Reale; Cildo Mereiles, HangarBicocca; Year after Year. Works on paper from the UBS Art Collection, Galleria d’Arte Moderna; Regina José Galindo, Pac-Padigline d’Arte Contemporanea; Michael E. Smith and Ian Cheng, Triennale di Milano.

Full list of events available at www.miart.it/en/spring-awakening.

A key component of miart week and special project for the 2014 edition is Cine Dreams, organized by Fondazione Nicola Trussardi and miart.

Cine Dreams is a special contemporary art project curated by Massimiliano Gioni and Vincenzo de Bellis, in the unique setting of Milan’s Ulrico Hoepli Planetarium, in collaboration with the City of Milan. The evenings of Friday 28, Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 March, from 10pm on, will be enlivened by the works of Stan VanDerBeek, Jeronimo Voss and Katie Paterson: projects conceived especially for planetariums, which have been adapted on this occasion to the gorgeous neoclassical building designed in the late 1920s by the architect Piero Portaluppi.

With its installations, multimedia projections, and sound and video works, Cine Dreams will be a miniature art festival that weaves tales of constellations and parallel universes, turning the planetarium into a place of discovery where different disciplines—optics, theater, computer science, literature, and more—flow together in a journey to find new possible worlds.

A new series of miartalks will take place during the fair with a multidisciplinary program of lectures, conversations, and interviews featuring outstanding international personalities—artists, designers, museum directors, critics, curators, and collectors. The themes discussed will range from production to distribution, encouraging reflections and variations around four cultural clusters for which Milan is an international point of reference: art, collecting, design and fashion.
