4-6 May 2012. After the great success of the past editions, the Milan Image Art Fair 2012, one of Milan’s most attended fairs for photography and video art, returns to Milan.
More than 250 exhibitors, such as galleries, independent photographers, specialised publishers and photo laboratories, coming from Italy, the US and South America, are attended and will present over 200 Italian and international artists.
Last year MIA registered over 15.000 visitors. Its intent is to emerge from the traditional Italian art fairs, focusing on the transversal role, played by photography. The participating artists were selected by a scientific committee and each one will have his and her own stand. MIA includes a rich calendar of workshops, encounters and conferences, hosted in the rooms of Superstudio Più. A special section is dedicated to quality publishing and offers visitors a glimpse on the world of photographic books, which range from great editors’ productions to the experimentations of small, independent publishing houses, from historical books to more refined, limited edition productions and self-publishing books. A pavilion is entirely dedicated to fashion fine art photography and some of the most important galleries, connected to the international fashion world, propose some works of art, which have revolutionized the role of this particular art genre.
Great emphasis is put on the cultural aspects related to photographic books through encounters, presentations, book signings and exhibitions, such as the one dedicated to the 20 Best Dummies, displays a series of proofs and layouts, selected by the Dummy Award jury of Paris within the Kassel Photobook Festival.
