Mia Fair 2021 Returns with a New Home and Lots of Surprises
#Exhibitions

In the new home of Superstudio Maxi, the 2021 edition of the most important Italian fair dedicated to photography is ready to start again with plenty of surprises for the public. This year, MIA Fair, with a completely fresh edition, will feature British photographer Rankin, distinguished, during his long career, for his audacious approach behind the lens. This flair, capable of creating incisive images, has resulted in the pieces from his project Saved by the Bell which are to be seen at MIA. But the heart of MIA beats, above all, for one of its dearest friends, recently deceased. For the October edition, in fact, the exhibition project conceived by Giovanni Gastel for the 2020 will be featured. The 7.000 square metres of the MIA Fair’s new home - which promises to become one of the main hubs for photography in the city - allow for the scope of the fair to be expanded, concentrating on the study and transversality of contemporary artistic languages and offering the public a mosaic of the current state and prospects of photography itself. Now the fair has enlarged with two new sections, the MIDA Milan Image Design Art - which analyses the dialogue between photography and design - and the Beyond Photography/Dialogue which takes an in-depth look at the relationship with contemporary art. A panel of 90 galleries, both Italian and foreign, enrich the Main Section, the heart of the fair. The collaboration between MIA Fair 2021 and the Museo delle Culture di Lugano (MUSEC) manifests itself in the exhibition Artificial Japan. Photos of the Yokohama School. 1860-1910, a selection of works from the photo collection of the Ada Ceschin and Rosanna Pilone Foundation of Zurich, held at MUSEC.
