MIA&D FAIR – SINGAPORE
Marina Bay Sands
VIP Opening 23rd October
Milan Image Art and Design Fair (MIA&D Fair) kicks off its first international edition in Singapore to showcase contemporary works of photography, video and design. Milan Image Art Fair is ready to open its first international edition entitled MIA&D Fair, which will be the first art fair of its kind that showcases a wealth of contemporary art in the form of photography, video and design in Singapore. The fair will be held at Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre from 24th to 26th October 2014.
Conceived in 2011 by Italian collector Fabio Castelli, MIA&D Fair is set to bring art and design collectors, artists, curators, along with photography enthusiasts from around the world. The fair, which is held under the patronage of EXPO Milano 2015, the Embassy of Italy in Singapore and the Italian Institute of Culture, will be a platform for new encounters and cultural exchanges on photography, video and design between Asian and Western countries.
For the first time, MIA&D Fair Singapore will present a Design section, which will showcase a curated selection of collectibles and furniture, which aims to propose a new dialogue between design and photography, thus distinguishing the fair from other art fairs in Singapore.
MIA&D Fair believes that Photography, Video and Design Art are all expressions of profound contemporary artistic research. In the last twenty years, photography and design have spoken a similar language.
Photography is no longer considered as a mere decorative medium, but it has been regarded as one of the highest forms of expressions in contemporary art. Similarly, Design is also recognized as an expression of creativity.
