MIART Milan’s Art Fair A Mirror To The Art World – James Payne

Published

In the hugely competitive world of art fairs, timing, as we know, is everything, but the location is equally important. Miart, Milan’s international modern and contemporary art fair, has ticked both boxes and takes place in April, just before the huge Milan Design Trade Fair (the largest trade fair of its kind in the world), and the Venice Biennale, a short train ride (or private jet) away, meaning the international VIP collectors are stopping off on their way to Venice. Inevitably, there is a little crossover with many sales made in Miart of artists whose work is also featured in the “no business” Venice Biennale. First Floor Gallery based in Harare, for example, sold several silicone weavings by Troy Makaza for up to €19,000 (£16,000), who is in Zimbabwe’s pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

It’s not really trying to compete with the commercial fairs like Art Basel or Frieze and is happy with its position as a medium-sized fair, but for me, it had a lot of appeal in terms of actual work and galleries. And, for all the reasons mentioned, it is an exciting time to visit Milan, with so many external projects running across what is one of the greatest Art Cities in the world.

Less than 200 meters (or about 650 feet) away from Art Basel is the June Art Fair, an alternative, intergenerational, independent platform that is nestled in a concrete bunker. Founded in 2019 by dealers Esperanza Rosales (of the VI, VII in Oslo) and Christian Andersen (of his namesake space in Copenhagen), the fair, which runs through June 16, aims to revive the magic the two felt when they first participated in Liste, Art Basel’s more established satellite fair.

“The idea emerged from the feeling that we needed to try to do something different to grow as galleries,” Rosales told ARTnews. “We thought, instead of saying that a fair does not work for us, we should try to do something else ourselves.”
