UNTITLED, ART (Dec 5 – Dec 10)
Untitled, Art was founded in 2012 and focuses on curatorial balance and integrity across all disciplines of contemporary art. It innovates the standard art fair model by selecting a curatorial team to choose galleries, artist-run exhibition spaces, and non-profit institutions and organizations in dialogue with an architect-designed venue (this year’s space as designed by K/R). The pertinent concepts of shelter and identity will be explored in this year’s projects and programming (highlights include Deus Cortado, a site-specific installation of paintings, sculpture, and stop-motion animations by Thiago Martins de Melo, Hotspot, a beach tent installation by Bogotá’s CARNE and San Juan’s Km 0.2, and Sergio Vega’s Shanty: on the mimetic faculty, a shanty dwelling comprised of discarded and raw materials). For highlights from Untitled, Art 2016, click HERE.
