Does Miami Beach need another art fair? We’re not sure, but we have to admit, this one sounds good: The Untitled art fair is launching its inaugural edition down in Miami this winter (December 5–9), and it will be curated. Fifty international galleries and nonprofits will choose their artists and artworks in conversation with curator Omar Lopez-Chahoud, who organized the sprawling, nine-gallery, Lower East Side exhibition Lush Life in 2010. The ultimate goal of Untitled art fair, according to the press release, is “a cogent and cohesive presentation that places emphasis on diversity and conceptual rigor.” That does sound like a nice change from your average shopping mall art fair.
Untitled, which will take place in a commissioned pavilion designed by architecture firm K/R, released a partial list of some of the participating galleries this week. Standout names include New York’s Art in General and Dodge Gallery, which will be showing Jason Middlebrook; Milan’s Federico Luger, showing Franklin Evans; and LA’s Steve Turner, showing Parker Ito. We know everyone already has too much to see and do in Miami Beach, but this new fair might be worth a look.
