MIA Fair photographs celebrate Expo

This year sees the richest and most wide-ranging edition of MIA Fair, the photography art fair conceived and directed by Fabio Castelli, which celebrates its fifth edition at The Mall, in Milan, from 11th to 13th April. 145 booths set up with great curatorial care, two purchase awards, a broad cultural program that includes a presentation of some great European photography festivals and specific talks inspired by the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roland Barthes, and a special focus on Expo 2015.

MIA Fair proposes two in-depth analyses accompanied by ad hoc exhibitions. One is a focus on the artist book, from the ‘70s up to today, featuring a selection of projects by artists including Olivo Barbieri, Luigi Ghirri, Paolo Gioli, Francesco Jodice, Nino Migliori, Franco Vaccari and Italo Zannier. The other is a study on a 19th Century Italian artist who, more than any other, recognized and adopted the potential of the brand new art of photography as a tool for enriching his painting: Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo. T 

MIA Fair lands at the renewed district of Porta Nuova Varesine, a symbol of the forward-looking Milan. The Mall, a multi-functional centre nestled among the skyscrapers that have changed the city skyline, has been chosen to accommodate the 145 exhibitors of the 2015 edition. This year new proposal is the Universal Exposition: in addition to the previous years’ formula by which each gallery exhibits exclusively the works of one artist per booth, the Fair also focuses on the theme of EXPO 2015, with more photographers for each gallery, and the same great curatorial exposition care.
