Milan, 18 January 2023 – This year too, Fondazione Fiera Milano will be a pivotal player in the 2023 Miart event (14-16 April Allianza MiCo), having confirmed its Acquisition Fund with a budget of 100,000 euro. Over the last few years, the Fund, set up in 2012 has allowed Fondazione Fiera Milano to expand its collection which now encompasses over 100 works of art. They are housed in Palazzina degli Orafi, the location of the Foundation’s main offices.

In the choice of which artwork to purchase, the President of Fondazione Fiera Milano, Enrico Pazzali, will be assisted by a prestigious international jury chaired by Diana Bracco, a member of the Foundation’s Steering Committee. Judging panel will include Ralph Rugoff, Director, Hayward Gallery at Southbank Centre, London, Dirk Snauwaert, Director, WIELS, Brussells and Bettina Steinbrügge, Director, Mudam Luxembourg.

Ever since the Fund was first set up, Enrico Pazzali explains, we have striven to provide real support to MiArt which is amongst the world’s most important and authoritative arts events. Miart has also seen Milan become one of the most important the art market venues. Just like so many other events taking place in our spaces, Miart succeeds in engaging the city’s social fabric through a plethora of events organised thanks to the invaluable support of the local municipality.

The Fondazione Fiera Milano collection, currently comprises works representing different artistic languages; from painting to sculpture, video to photography, design to installations. A heterogenous ensemble of styles, sharing common themes, such as the interplay between nature and culture, the dynamics between vision and representation, the tension between abstraction and figuration, between words and gestures, space and architecture.

The entire collection can be viewed on the Fondazione Fiera Milano website at the following page https://www.fondazionefieramilano.it/en/art-and-culture/fondazione-for-art-and-culture.html.
