Under the care of artistic director Omar López-Chahoud, Untitled Art returns to Miami Beach at Ocean Drive and 12th Street for its 11th edition, where more than 140 galleries and art spaces will be in attendance, representing 31 countries. Backed by a goal of diversifying and supporting the art ecosystem at large, the fair has selected presenters who are sharing the work of undiscovered and acclaimed creatives alike, seen across a lineup complete with booth presentations, performances, site-specific installations, and the second iteration of the Nest sector.
“For this year’s edition of Untitled Art, we are looking to stage an ambitious and forward-thinking presentation that reconsiders the role of an art fair in today’s cultural landscape,” said Untitled Art’s founder and director, Jeffrey Lawson. “In response to the growing commercialization of the art world, we are prioritizing collaboration, inclusivity, and providing space for collectors, art historians, curators, writers, and academics to interact, learn, and discover. We are excited to return with our strongest and most international program yet.”
Beginning this year, the fair will select one gallery annually to share a solo booth shining a spotlight on an older or deceased artist whose practice remains relevant in the discourse of contemporary art—this year’s feature is Galerie Christian Lethert of Cologne, Germany, bringing the work of the 82-year-old German artist Imi Knoebel. The Nest sector (offering subsidized booths to emerging art spaces) welcomes 21 presenters from destinations like Mexico City, Chicago, Tehran, Kyiv, Buenos Aires, and Oslo. Nest is also accompanied by a curated digital exhibition with 3D and VR experiences by Digital Partner Vortic, who has also sponsored the Nest Prize. Be sure not to miss the Vilebrequin immersive booth at the fair, in partnership with JRP|Editions, where the swimwear brand will present an array of products in collaboration with Kenny Scharf, Sylvie Fleury, John M Armleder, and a first look at the limited-edition capsule collection by Deux Femmes Noires, founded by Mickalene Thomas and Racquel Chevremont.
