Untitled Art is an innovative and inclusive platform for discovering contemporary art. It balances intellectual integrity with cutting-edge experimentation, refreshing the standard fair model by embracing a unique curatorial approach.

Untitled Art was founded in 2012 by Jeff Lawson. Each year, the fair selects a curatorial team to identify and curate a selection of international galleries, artist-run exhibition spaces, and non-profit institutions and organizations, in dialogue with an architecturally-designed venue. It launched the art world’s first virtual reality fair in July 2020 and will celebrate its 10th edition in 2021.

To mark the occasion, under the guidance of Artistic Director Omar López-Chahoud, the 2021 presentation features an expanded curatorial platform with four guest curators: Natasha Becker, Miguel A. López, Estrellita Brodsky and José Falconi. Brought together for their diverse perspectives and regional expertise, the curators will nurture dialogue between participating galleries and artists to generate a more global and inclusive conversation.

The 2021 presentation takes place on the sands of Miami Beach from Nov 29 until Dec 4. Comprising over 145 international contemporary galleries, the fair connects the best of contemporary art, live events, artist performances and other activations to keep more than 40,000 attendees captive and entertained during Miami Art Week.Guest CuratorsPartners

The Other Names consists of 503 portrait drawings of those who were mentioned by their “other names” (the aliases that Colombian criminals assume), in El Tiempo, one of the country’s largest newspapers. The 503 portraits encompass each and every alias that appeared in the newspaper during 2020, making the installation a one-year visual encyclopedia, a snapshot of the country’s violent criminal history.

A selection of textile works from 1970s to 1980s
Presented by Herlitzka + Faria, Buenos Aires, Booth A46

Herlitzka + Faria, Buenos Aires is pleased to present A Return to The Thread by Alvaro Gómez. This presentation brings together a selection of textile works created from the early 1970s to 1980s and makes reference to the very origin of textile art, the thread.

Curated by Estrellita Brodsky and José Falconi

Organized by guest curators Estrellita Brodsky and José Falconi, Elsewhere(s) brings together works by over 25 artists from Latin America and its diaspora, drawn from Untitled Art’s roster of participating galleries as well as Latin American private collections and institutions. Occupying various spaces around the fair’s main entrance, the exhibition aims to counter the marginal position of the region’s art within the commercial art market, while reflecting on artists’ roles to envision alternative societies as shamans, healers or utopian visionaries. The exhibition features works from multiple periods and regions, grouped around themes of cosmology, magic, and non-Western forms of knowledge.

Bradley McCallum
Of Light
Presented by Catharine Clark Gallery

Confined to his home studio during the global pandemic, artist Bradley McCallum started to examine and dissect the unfolding crises in America. Cutting, ripping, pasting, overlaying different images, and adding textured materials, collage became a way to reflect on the fragments of daily life and offer a visual diary of contemporary events.

Of Light encompasses more than a 100 artworks that capture and processes the crises, revealing an arc of intimate, emotional, and challenging moments. Loss and death, are refined through images, textures, and associations. We see flowers at a public memorial, a figure with a raised fist backlit by a roaring fire, a couple holding onto each other for dear life; each seemingly banal situation finds its place within the larger narrative. But there are also poignant moments of individuals and communities coming together, marching, grieving, overcoming, bridging divides, remembering, healing, helping: fragments of profound compassion, scattered moments of light and love.

Joyce Billet
Rising, 2021
Etched and cut plywood

My work explores the tension between the analog and the digital.

I am interested in duality: positive and negative forms, presence and absence, darkness and light. Rising explores these concepts by engaging both wall and floor with horizontal and vertical panels, rooted at the ground, and suspended as they rise. It challenges the traditional ways of painting by altering the flat surface into a visual, tactile, and functional sculptural element. Going back and forth between the natural and the industrial, plywood is a raw yet processed material which I transform through machine cuts and etchings directly abstracted from my hand paintings.

Connecting back to human nature, the unpainted wood is burnt revealing the truth of the material, the memory it collects through built-up layers that disappear as they are assembled. Repetition, fluid lines, height, and narrow forms create a rigid yet organic environment, providing an immersive moment both visually and physically.
