Fieramilanocity – Milan
Pavilion 15

Milan’s 11th International Modern and Contemporary Art Fair – MiArt – opens its doors to the public from 30 March to 2 April 2006.

The inauguration ceremony takes place on the evening of 29 March, in Pavilion 15 of Milan’s downtown Fieramilanocity exhibition center: this magnificent venue will also host the fair in 2007 (29 March – 1 April) and 2008 (10 – 13 April).

As in 2005, the stands in the Modern and Contemporary art sections will have 4 meter tall dividing walls. Once again, MiArt will be inviting galleries to submit their plans for prior approval. To ensure the utmost quality, the MiArt Review Board will examine all entries. There has been no change in the Review Board: the members are Claudia Gian Ferrari, Claudio Guenzani, Matteo Lorenzelli, Massimo Mininni, Marco Niccoli and Carla Pellegrini Rocca.
Gallery owners Benjamin Brown in London and Philomene Magers in Munich are goodwill ambassadors for MiArt in their respective countries. The fair’s general artistic advisor is Pasquale Leccese, and Roberta Tenconi is the advisor for the Anteprima section.

MiArt is the only Italian exhibition and trade fair divided into three separation sections, covering the period from the Avant-garde movements to the latest trendsetters currently sweeping across the global artistic landscape.

The Modern art section is accessible to galleries presenting works by artists from the turn of the last century to the 1960s; the Contemporary art section is devoted to exhibitors presenting more recent works, and the Anteprima section hosts galleries that specialize in emerging talents less than 35 years of age.

During the event there will be the usual array of conferences and meetings bringing together members of the art community with the public at large. And starting in 2006 MiArt will be embarking on a new initiative: each year a special invitation will be extended to a different country: the first guest country will be China.
Some of today’s leading Chinese contemporary art galleries will be in attendance.

The complete program will be presented over the course of several events due to be held both in Italy and overseas, the first of which is scheduled for Berlin in November 2005, followed by the official press conference announcing the 2006 edition, which will be held in Milan in January.
