miart 2015 renews and augments the close collaboration launched three years ago by Vincenzo de Bellis with all the realities operating in the promotion and awareness of art in Milan, presenting the second edition of The Spring Awakening, the program of events, openings and special hours involving public institutions, foundations and private galleries, starting on 8 April and for the entire period of the fair.

The program includes special visits and openings every day: from new exhibitions at the Triennale like the major show Arts & Foods, and the Triennale Design Museum with Cucina & ultracorpi, both curated by Germano Celant for Expo, to the extraordinary restoration of the Teatro Continuo of Alberto Burri, finally back in the city 42 years after its construction and 26 years after its dismantling, in the centennial year of the great artist, thanks to the City of Milan and Fondazione La Triennale, with the contribution of NCTM Studio Legale Associato in the context of the project nctm e l’arte. From the opening at HangarBicocca with the retrospective on Juan Muñoz to the solo show by Celine Condorelli at that same location, and the finissages of the exhibitions GROWING ROOTS – 15 years of Premio Furla at Palazzo Reale and The rules of the Game at Fondazione Achille Castiglioni, as well as the exhibitions on Medardo Rosso in progress at GAM at Villa Reale, and on David Bailey at PAC – Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea. Not to mention the thousands of appointments the city is preparing, emphasizing Milan’s DNA as a capital of contemporary creativity and offering a preview of what will be the long, exciting period of Expo 2015.
