MILAN.- It’s already time for MIA - Milan Image Art Fair, the international photography art fair conceived in Italy is now also ready to make its debut in Asia in 2014, aiming to become an all-important reference point for photography and art enthusiasts and collectors.

After the event in Milan (Superstudio Più, Via Tortona 27) from 23rd to 25th May 2014, MIA Fair will be a double bill on the international exhibition art scenario with the opening - from 24th to 26th October 2014 - of MIA FAIR SINGAPORE.

Now in its fourth edition, directed by Fabio Castelli, MIA Fair hosts the best of the world of photography under a format unique on the Italian art-fair scene, proposing one booth for each artist – each artist with his/her own catalogue which, as from this year, will be in an innovative format, switching from the traditional hard copy to the e-book format.

The event, with the patronage of Regione Lombardia, Provincia di Milano and Comune di Milano, can once again count on its partners BNL Gruppo BNP Paribas, Lavazza, BMW i, Eberhard & Co. and Nikon.

“In just a few seasons - says Fabio Castelli - MIA Fair has brought a wave of positive energy to the world of Italian photography. In 2014 MIA Fair will be particularly inspiring, with a number of new developments: the year opened with the success in terms of public and sales achieved at Arte Fiera in Bologna where, for the first time, we were in charge of a section entirely dedicated to photography. Ideally, 2014 will close with the prestigious MIA Fair Singapore, scheduled to be held in Marina Bay Sands from 23rd to 26th October. The fourth MIA Fair Milano will offer many new quality exhibits and features, studied and organised by my staff with their usual dedication and attention to detail, which I am certain will satisfy the expectations of our exhibitors and the public”.

In 2013, MIA Fair achieved an important success with the public: 20,000 collectors, journalists and art and design enthusiasts visited the booths, admiring the works presented by the 230 exhibitors and taking part in the 10 round tables, 18 publishing presentations and 20 book signing sessions organised with international guests.

At the next edition, there will be around 200 exhibitors – including galleries, independent photographers and specialist publishers – not only from Italy but also from Europe and the rest of the world, selected by the scientific committee consisting of: 3/3 photography projects - Rome, photographic image research studio; Gigliola Foschi, curator and art critic, Elio Grazioli, contemporary art critic and curator; Roberto Mutti, curator and photographic critic; Enrica Vigan , curator, photographic critic and organiser of events connected with photography.

As it does every year, MIA Fair offers a programme with many new features, including: the Mila Malerba Award the “Caffè Artistico” curatorial project by Lavazza, the presentation of MAST (Manifattura, Sperimentazione e Tecnologia) Foundation and Speaking to you, the 30 video installations that tell the story of 30 Italian photographers. MIA Fair will offer a wide cultural program, with special focus on the lectio magistralis of Hans Op de Beeck, and various talks on personalities from the international artistic scene, such us Francesco Bonami and Urs Stahel. Mia Fair also recommends the artistic/musical performance by singer Irene Grandi and the video artists Pastis,
