As UNTITLED, ART is a curated art fair, a strong theme runs through the extensive virtual programming planned for this year’s Miami Art Week. The 2020 edition of the fair focuses on Contemporary Artists from the Caribbean, spotlighting artists and organizations from this region, who are creating innovative and important work across the globe.
UNTITLED, ART Miami Beach will continue to maintain relationships with its cultural partners across the city of Miami, including The Bass, ICA Miami, El Espacio 23, and MOCA North Miami, among others, as well as provide support to local nonprofits which often rely on an influx of tourism this December art week. Curators from these institutions, along with international curators, local collectors and cultural tastemakers, will be tapped to share their picks from the Online Viewing Rooms of UNTITLED, ART. Confirmed participants include: Agnes B., fashion designer and collector; Susanna Temkin, curator, El Museo del Barrio; Ana Sokoloff, art advisor; and Leilani Lynch, curator, The Bass.
On Wednesday, December 2, Helen Toomer, Executive Director of AIRIE will be in conversation with artist Rebecca Reeve about her work with the residency program.
