miart 26th Edition Celebrates the Art of Progress and Collaboration

By Erica Silverman

March 29, 2022

Milan’s international modern and contemporary art fair, miart, organized by Fiera Milano, returns as Italy’s first art fair of the year this week. Under the encore directorship of Nicola Ricciardi, the fair’s 26th edition takes place April 1-3, and welcomes presentations from 151 major Italian and international galleries. The fair is integral to the beloved Milan Art Week, occurring March 28-April 3. 

Miart has streamlined the fair into three sections: Established, the main area hosting masters of modern art and bold, new works; Decades, curated by Alberto Salvadori, exploring the history of the 20th century through thematic exhibitions; and Emergent, curated by Attilia Fattori Franchini and focused on the newest generation of gallery owners and artists.

In 2022 fairgoers will experience a new phase of miart, the primo movimento: defining the industry’s spirited progress into the future. The term, which expresses a piece of music in varied sections, embodies the initiatives launched with organizations in theater, dance, and the performing arts. Miart sparks the collective forward movement of artists, gallerists, and citizens alike on a journey to cultivate a perfect symphony. OutPut, an original project focusing on performance in public spaces, is curated by Davide Giannella and features the work of visual artist Riccardo Benassi and Italian choreographer Michele Rizzo

Featured galleries within miart’s Established section include: LABS Contemporary Art, Bologna, highlighting a dialogue between artists with a shared creative process, Marcia Hafif and Giulia Marchi; Smac gallery, Cape Town, presents an exhibition of new paintings by artist Kate Gottgens; Nilufar Gallery, Milan, showcases works by architect, designer, and artist Andrea Branzi; and Galleria Alfonso Artiaco, Naples, includes pieces by the celebrated Giovanni Anselmo.
