The twenty-eighth edition of miart—the international modern and contemporary art fair organised by Fiera Milano and directed by Nicola Ricciardi (April 12–14 2024, with its VIP preview on April 11)—returns with more participating galleries (178 from 28 countries, up from 169 in 2023), over 1,000 works by modern masters and established contemporary artists, two brand new curated sections, and several art projects spread across the city.

A renewed edition of the Milano Art Week (April 8–14), the widespread event jointly organized by miart and the Department of Culture for the City of Milan, brings together the local main public museums and private foundations, each presenting distinguished exhibitions and original projects, including: grand retrospectives on Pino Pascali at Fondazione Prada and Alessandro Mendini at Triennale Milano; solo shows by Nari Ward and Chiara Camoni at Pirelli Hangar Bicocca and by Adrian Piper at PAC Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea; ITALIA 70, a project curated by Massimiliano Gioni for Fondazione Nicola Trussardi taking over Milan with art posters by 70 leading contemporary artists; TALAMO, a performative sculpture by Lemonot at BASE Milano; three coinciding openings at Museo del Novecento (Magali Reus. Off Script curated by Federico Giani, Masbedo – Ritratto di Città curated by Cloe Piccoli and VOL. XXXI: Futurism Drama curated by Edoardo Bonaspetti) and two more at Fondazione ICA Milano (the exhibitions Notizia by Erika Verzutti and La casa dentro by Formafantasma).

Another bridge between the fair and the city is Abbandonare il locale, the first monographic exhibition in Italy dedicated to David Horvitz, curated by miart’s Nicola Ricciardi. Over 20 works by the American artist will be exhibited inside an abandoned office at BiM—Dove Bicocca incontra Milano, an ambitious urban regeneration project in the Bicocca district. The exhibition stems from the desire of giving a tangible form to the expression no time no space—chosen as the theme and title of the 28th edition of miart to underline the fair’s aspiration to increasingly broaden its geographical and temporal boundaries—and it mixes some of Horvitz’s historical works with new productions and found objects, to examine questions of distance between places, people and time.

Moreover, in keeping with the title chosen by miart 2024, the time-based media production and research centre in Milan, Careof, are organising a film screening series called Comete. Avanguardie di un altro sistema solare, curated by Marta Bianchi and Marta Cereda in collaboration with the City of Milan. The screenings will take place inside Milan’s main movie theatre, Anteo Palazzo del Cinema, every morning from Friday to Sunday April 12–14, and present selected works from the Careof Video Archive and the municipal collections by artists such as Liliana Moro, Adrian Paci, Rä di Martino, Beatrice Marchi and Ugo La Pietra, just to name a few. Artists are also invited to host public conversations about their work, to contextualize and expand their research, transforming the movie theatre into a space for dialogue and study.

Also spread around the fair and the city is miartalks, a programme of live debates and conversations realised in collaboration with Starbucks Reserve Roastery Milano, bringing together a variety of inspiring cultural figures. From Friday to Sunday April 12–14, the directors of some of the most prestigious art institutions, such as Stefanie Hessler, Lorenzo Giusti, Gioia Dal Molin, will talk to prominent members of the worlds of music (Raphael Gualazzi, Carlo Pastore, Lorenzo Senni), architecture, and design (Maria Cristina Didero, Giovanna Silva, LEMONOT, among many others). The programme also features three interesting panel discussions held at the Starbucks Reserve™ Roastery Milano (piazza Cordusio, 3) featuring the artists Francesco Arena, David Horvitz and MASBEDO.
