UNTITLED, ART, the international, curated art fair is pleased to announce its list of exhibitors for the eighth edition of UNTITLED, ART Miami Beach, taking place December 4–8, 2019. A collection of 126 international galleries and nonprofit spaces from 28 countries and 57 cities make up the 2019 roster, carefully selected by Artistic Director and Curator Omar López-Chahoud. For the eighth Miami Beach outing, UNTITLED, ART will also launch a new Writer in Residence program and announce the latest guest curator. San Francisco-based, independent curator Jordan Stein will select and install a special section within the fair and New York-based art writer Osman Can Yerebakan will inaugurate the Writer in Residence program.

With an expanded range of participants, UNTITLED, ART is proud to welcome a growing list of outstanding international exhibitors. First-time participants include Addis Fine Art (Ethiopia), MAKASIINI CONTEMPORARY (Finland), Patrick Heide Contemporary Art (London), Pintô International (Philippines) and Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery (Luxembourg).

Selected highlights include Primo Marella Gallery, Milan, presenting Joel Andrianomearisoa, who represented Madagascar at this year’s Venice Biennale, and Benrubi Gallery, New York, presenting hundreds of never-before-seen portraits by Tom Bianchi from 1975-1983. Herlizka + Faria, Buenos Aires, will present a selection of conceptual works by Latin American artists including Marta Minujin, who currently has an exhibition at the New Museum. Yancey Richardson Gallery, New York, will exhibit a group presentation focusing on “the evolution and perception of gender roles and sexual identification,” including works by Mickalene Thomas who will have a concurrent solo exhibition at the Bass Museum of Art. The Chicago-based creative group Blackpuffin will collaborate with the collective For Freedoms on “Looks of Freedom,” an exhibition and performative visual essay offering a stage to “unpack and repack notions of blackness, brownness, queerness and belonging.”

Guest Curator

Jordan Stein’s extensive curatorial experience and involvement in various cooperative endeavors keenly align with UNTITLED, ART’s commitment to introduce innovative perspectives to the fair, keeping artists and collaboration at the forefront. His distinct role in the San Francisco visual arts community as an innovative voice strengthens an exchange between UNTITLED, ART’s two locations, and his curatorial perspective will contribute to the eighth edition of UNTITLED, ART Miami Beach by introducing an exciting new association with a select group of Everglades-based artists and organizations.

“We have been fans of Jordan’s work since we saw his Miyoko Ito exhibition at BAMPFA in 2017 and are thrilled to have him participating in this year’s curatorial initiative,” says UNTITLED, ART Executive Director Manuela Mozo. “We hope this presentation will provide our international audience with a unique experience of the local South Florida art world.”

Stein will work together with Lopez-Chahoud to curate a set of works by Everglades-based artist Dick Jay as well as activate programming with AIRIE (Artists in Residence in Everglades), Benrubi Gallery’s presentation of “Coral Project” and other South Florida artist projects.

“To present this extraordinary work at UNTITLED, ART is an honor for me and for Dick, an 89-year-old, self-taught painter based at the mouth of Everglades on Plantation Island, who seldom shows artwork outside of the home in which it is created.” Said Jordan Stein, “It is exciting to include AIRIE, a group that embeds artists, writers, and musicians directly into the Everglades to live, work, and explore, in full partnership with the National Park Service. It is an inspiring program, especially now that our stewardship of such magical places is more critical than ever.”

Stein’s curatorial experience ranges from writing and editorial projects to solo exhibitions, group shows and performance programs at institutions, nonprofit organizations and commercial galleries. In 2012 he founded the interdisciplinary collaborative group Will Brown, whose primary focus is to manipulate the structures of exhibition-making as an interpretive practice. He founded Cushion Works, a gallery on the second floor of an active cushion making workshop in San Francisco, in 2017. The space has hosted exhibitions with artists including Zarouhie Abdalian, Lutz Bacher, John Gossage and Joaquín Segura. His recent exhibitions curated elsewhere include: Earache, Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco, CA; If Not Apollo, the Breeze, KADIST, San Francisco; Miyoko Ito: Heart of Hearts, Artists Space, New York; Miyoko Ito: MATRIX 267, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley, CA; and So I traveled a great deal..., Matthew Marks Gallery, New York (co-organized with Vincent Fecteau).

Writer in Residence (WiR)

The UNTITLED, ART Writer in Residence program is a new initiative to expand opportunities for art journalists and critics. UNTITLED, ART will fund travel and accommodation for one participant to each fair and provide an honorarium. The Writer in Residence will create original content drawn from the fair, while also being at liberty to write for publications on topics not involving UNTITLED, ART while they are in Miami Beach or San Francisco.

“UNTITLED, ART recognizes the challenges faced by writers in the art world and values their role in enhancing the public’s understanding of contemporary art,” says Mozo. “We are deeply committed to providing content and context on behalf of our exhibitors and the artists they present, so we are excited to launch WiR as a new path to connect with our audiences.”

Osman Can Yerebakan will publish one daily dispatch during each day of the fair. Topics will be of the writer’s choosing, and may range from sales reports and highlights, to identifying trends among works on view, artist profiles and dealer interviews. These dispatches will be distributed via the UNTITLED, ART’s email newsletter and the social media platforms of both Yerebakan and the fair. The WiR will have the option to participate in UNTITLED, ART panels, and the UNTITLED, ART podcast and takeover the UNTITLED, ART social media platforms.

Osman Can Yerebakan is a curator and art writer based in New York. His writing has appeared in T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Paris Review, Artforum, New York magazine, Observer, Brooklyn Rail, BOMB, Wallpaper*, Harper's Bazaar Arabia, Galerie, Cultured, among many other outlets.

The San Francisco Writer in Residence will be announced in October 2019.
