Organized by Fiera Milano and directed by Vincenzo de Bellis, with vice-director Alessandro Rabottini, this year offering many new developments and increasingly prestigious collaborations.

From 7 to 10 April the pavilions of fieramilanocity will welcome 154 international galleries, once again representing the best of modern and contemporary art and limited-edition design, from 16 countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, United States, Uruguay).

The galleries have been chosen for the high quality of their exhibition projects, by a selection committee, from over 350 applications.

Many important international galleries are returning after participating in previous years, including Alfonso Artiaco (Naples), Gavin Brown’s Enterprise (New York), CLEARING (New York – Brussels), Cardi (London – Milan), Sadie Coles HQ (London), Continua (San Gimignano – Beijing – Les Moulins – Havana), Massimo De Carlo (Milan – London), Dépendance (Brussels), kaufmann repetto (Milan – New York), Johann König (Berlin), Andrew Kreps (New York), Giò Marconi (Milan), Massimo Minini (Brescia), Office Baroque (Brussels), Robilant+Voena (London – Milan), Lia Rumma (Milan – Naples), Christian Stein (Milan – Pero), T293 (Naples – Rome), Tega (Milan), Tornabuoni Arte (Florence – London – Milan – Paris), Michael Werner (New York – London), Zero… (Milan). Among the many galleries participating for the first time, prestigious international names stand out like Blain Southern (London), Campoli Presti (London – Paris), Marc Foxx (Los Angeles), Greene Naftali (New York), Rodolphe Janssen (Brussels), Lelong (Paris – New York), Mai 36 (Zürich), Anthony Reynolds (London), Esther Schipper (Berlin), Galleria dello Scudo (Verona), Sperone Westwater (New York), Wilkinson (London). The Object section on design this year features the participation of influential galleries, including Luisa delle Piane (Milan), Erastudio Apartment-Gallery (Milan), Galleria O. Roma (Rome), Machado-Muñoz (Madrid), Nilufar (Milan), Secondome (Rome), Antonella Villanova (Florence).

A new feature of this 21st edition is the Decades section, which with its nine galleries offers an itinerary through the 20th century decade by decade. Decades outlines a narrative that emphasizes the two spirits of miart – modern and contemporary – with particular emphasis on high-quality historic art in a moment of great interest on the international market in the art of the period after World War II, particularly in Italy.

Decades joins the four sections that have been parts of miart since 2013: Established, with 99 exhibitors – subdivided into the subsections Master, for galleries presenting historically acclaimed artists, and Contemporary, for galleries specializing in contemporary work; Emergent, on 16 international galleries concentrating on the research of the younger generations, including 11 foreign galleries; THENnow, which features 8 pairs of galleries that join forces to trigger dialogue between one historic artist and one from a more recent generation; and, finally, Object, with a selection of 14 galleries active in the promotion of contemporary design objects created in limited editions and approached as works of art.
