MIA Photo Fair is delighted to announce the launch of the third edition of the IRINOX SAVE THE FOOD AWARD, curated by Claudio Composti, esteemed co-founder and art director of mc2gallery, alongside his role as an independent curator.
This prestigious award invites artists from all walks of life, irrespective of age or nationality, to explore the theme of food and food waste in its myriad forms. Up to 15 talented artists will be handpicked to showcase their works in a curated exhibition, free of charge, during the 13th edition of MIA Photo Fair, scheduled to take place from April 11th to 14th, 2024 (with a VIP Preview on April 10th), at MiCo Allianz in Milan, Italy. The selected artists will be granted a dedicated space within the fair to present their pieces.
The IRINOX SAVE THE FOOD AWARD is made possible through the generous support of Irinox, S.p.A., a pioneering manufacturer renowned for its rapid blast chillers and high-quality preservation systems for the industry. Following their exhibition at MIA Photo Fair, the winning artists will have the opportunity to showcase their works in Parma during CIBUS, the renowned international Made in Italy food fair, at a prominent venue in the city.
Submission Deadline: February 25, 2024
Concept: This award seeks to spotlight artists who have employed various visual mediums to explore the theme of food. Food, beyond its essential sustenance, holds profound symbolic and socio-anthropological significance ingrained in human heritage. The act of sharing meals transcends mere nourishment; it forms the cornerstone of human connections. Across diverse artistic realms, from cinema to literature, artists have depicted the multifaceted narrative of food, interpreting its rich meanings. In today's context, with food sustainability emerging as a critical socio-economic issue, these artistic explorations carry heightened relevance.
In its third edition, the IRINOX SAVE THE FOOD award aligns with the mission and values of Irinox, a frontrunner in the field of rapid blast chillers for both domestic and professional settings. Irinox has long been committed to environmental sustainability and raising awareness about food waste. By advocating for the culture of cold conservation, Irinox aims to combat food waste, minimize time and energy consumption, and preserve the integrity of food properties. Through this award, Irinox endeavors to further its mission of promoting sustainable practices in food preservation and waste reduction.
