Untitled Art is located on Miami Beach at Ocean Dr. & 12th St.

This year marks our most international presentation to date, focusing on collaboration across the greater art community. New to the 11th edition are exhibitor Prizes, supported by our Premier Prize Partners to establish opportunities for collaboration and support of the larger art ecosystem beyond the fair itself: The Nest Prize by Vortic, 21c Museum Hotels Acquisition Prize, Colección Solo Acquisition PrizeCCA Andratx Artist-in-Residence PrizeLast Resort Artist Retreat Residency Prize, Pébéo Production Prize, and the Fountainhead Residency Prize.

Our curatorial platform has expanded this year, spearheaded by Artistic Director Omar López-Chahoud in support of the wider arts ecosystem – both globally and locally in Miami. Selected artists, galleries, and non-profits will tackle topics from the environment, to race and diversity, to artificial intelligence in an effort to celebrate new and underrepresented voices. Monuments, located west of the sand dunes on Miami Beach, features a selection of artworks open to the public. Presenting elements of the fair outside allows participating galleries and artists to interact with the city of Miami Beach and visitors in a wider capacity. In addition, various Special Projects will be presented throughout the fair that call attention to key issues and new artistic voices. Highlights this year include:
  • For Freedoms’ For Freedoms News (FFN) following its premier at the Brooklyn Museum (October 28 – November 6, 2022), this artist-led project seeks to generate broader civic engagement in advance of the 2022 midterm elections. For Untitled Art, the installation and performance will consist of an interview area and news set in parallel with a performance of roving “reporters on the street.”
  • In celebration of the longstanding tradition of Untitled Art working with artists to activate the VIP Lounge, visitors this year will find an installation and group exhibition presented by BEVERLY’S, an artist-run exhibition and service industry platform founded in 2012 in the Lower East Side / Chinatown neighborhood of Lower Manhattan.
  • Artist Rachel Garrard will construct a temporary installation of large rusted steel sculptures seemingly emerging from Miami Beach in reference of ancient traditions. Titled Pathways Beyond Time, (2022) and presented by Colector, this work is a continuation of Garrard’s site-specific, transitory installations that use nature as their medium.
  • Val del Omar’s Por aquí ya no hay camino, (There’s no path here anymore), (circa 1961) is one of the first sound work installations presented as a Special Project at Untitled Art and will feature a collection of sounds from the artist’s lab, which he called PLAT (Picto Lumínica Audio Tactil) comprising of recordings from his movies, radio recordings, family conversations and reflections. Presented by Max Estrella.
  • Courtesy of the Jorge M. Pérez Collection, Miami, and El Espacio 23, Ema Ri’s Language is leaving me, (2021) will materially possess the walls to expose organic patterns, shapes, and the extensive representations of life through excised paint, and plaster, coming alive from the inside out. A second-generation Cuban-American and queer artist, Ri’s practice contemplates the unseen relationships, communions, and felt impressions that everything and everyone experiences.
  • Shango | Digital Throne (2022) by Yelaine Rodriguez and presented by Auttrianna Projects is the third iteration of the conceptual artist’s immersive altars as a site-specific installation of video, photography, sculpture, and fiber work. In collaboration with Mare Residency Founder Auttrianna Ward, this version will incorporate digital offerings to Shango from Afro-Diasporic artists working within video art: biarritzzz and Taína Cruz. This project will inaugurate with a live performance by Kaila Paulino. Programming by Auttrianna Projects is sponsored by: Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), The55project, The Last Resort Artist Retreat, and Kalpa Art Advisory.

Live performances will also accompany the fair. Highlights include Studio Lenca’s improvised movement piece Performance (2022) where the artist will distribute wooden arrows to the audience as a metaphor for the barriers and obstacles encountered by his community in El Salvador. This work is further contextualized within the artist’s Special Project at the fair of large-scale paintings and sculptures that explore an estranged cultural heritage and universal themes of identity— Ni de aquí, ni de allá (Not from here, not from there) (2022) presented by Y.ES Contemporary. In addition, Titling the Untitled: An Interview Series (2022) presented by The Locker Roomproposes a series of interviews in the “man-on-the-street” style hosted by artist Catherine Candor. In these interviews with the Untitled Art founder, team, staff, galleries, and attendees, Candor will ask a few questions that will be released via Instagram November 28th, 29th, and December 1st, 2022.

The Untitled Art Podcast also returns for a third year to serve an expanded audience. New this year are two dedicated days hosted by the fair’s Programming Partners, Her Clique and [NAME], alongside additional conversations and panel discussions that expand on the presentations of the fair’s 2022 exhibitors.
