MIAMI, FLA.- Untitled Art shared the curatorial highlights for the 2021 fair in Miami Beach, taking place from November 30 to December 4, 2021 (VIP Preview: November 29). Brought together for their diverse perspectives and regional expertise and in celebration of the fair’s 10th edition, the expanded curatorial team consists of Natasha Becker and Miguel A. López, Estrellita Brodsky and José Falconi.

• Natasha Becker, Curator of African Art at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, showcases Reinvention, a group presentation that profiles eleven galleries dedicated to Black voices. The presentation will feature work from eleven galleries: Albertz Benda, Anna Zorina Gallery, BEERS London, Bode Projects, Davidson Gallery, De Buck Gallery, Galerie Julien Cadet, Gallery1957, Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, Luis De Jesus Los Angeles and WHATIFTHEWORLD.

• Miguel A. López, a Peruvian writer, researcher and former Co-Director and Chief Curator of TEOR/éTica in San José, Costa Rica, presents Moving Feeling which highlights a series of works from different generations and geographies where the body appears as a tool to investigate the social. Featured galleries include: 1969 Gallery, Bill Arning Presents, Bockley Gallery, Dio Horia Gallery, Erin Cluley Gallery, Galería del Paseo, Galerie Kandlhofer, Javiera Aninat´s Projects, La Galería Rebelde, Luis De Jesus Los Angeles, Monica King Projects and Steve Turner Gallery.

• Estrellita Brodsky, art historian, collector, and advocate for art from Latin America, in collaboration with José Falconi, Professor of Art History and Human Rights at the University of Connecticut, will co-curate Elsewhere(s), a presentation centered around themes of cosmology, magic, shamanism and non-Western forms of knowledge. Assuming geographical indetermination as an aesthetic principle, the exhibition brings together historical and contemporary works from over twenty-five artists from Latin America and its diaspora, drawn from Untitled Art’s roster of participating galleries as well as Latin American private collections and institutions.

Offering further support for emerging voices at the fair will be a new cash prize, supported by Stelle & Fortuna, awarded to the best gallery presentation at Untitled Art’s new ‘Nest’ sector, which launches this year in aid of emerging galleries, collectives and non-profits who have been impacted by the global pandemic.

“Untitled Art has always valued and utilized varying curatorial perspectives. This year, we welcome four guest curators, whose unique presentations across the fair support diverse voices, both historical and contemporary. We hope the expanded curatorial presentations will provide a sense of discovery and connection for viewers,” says Omar López-Chahoud, Artistic Director, Untitled Art.

“The global pandemic exposed realities that we know exist; there are economic Souths in the geographic North and Norths in the geographic South. Thus, the Global South no longer refers to geography and nation states but to spaces and peoples negatively impacted by contemporary capitalist globalization, the global art market, global environmental disasters and global viruses. I’m excited to curate an experiment in juxtaposition that attempts to transcend both geopolitics and a bipolar narrative of North and South,” said Natasha Becker, guest curator.

“I’m thrilled to collaborate in this special edition of Untitled Art. My curatorial contribution will be an exploration on how body representation and movement offer other ways to reconsider ideas about citizenship, the public, collective memory, belonging and urgency. The idea is to create a plural conversation regarding the power of the body and its potential to reconnect with transformative desire,” said Miguel A. López, guest curator.

“I am delighted to be collaborating with my colleague José Falconi to champion the work of Latin American artists at Untitled Art. Throughout my academic and philanthropic work as well as the activities of my nonprofit program ANOTHER SPACE, I have always strived to broaden appreciation of the art from Latin America within a global context. With our exhibition Elsewhere(s), we want to reflect on the marginal position of LatinX and Latin American artists within the Western historical canon and bring visibility to the region’s tradition of otherworldliness, shamanism and other esoteric forms of knowledge rejected by Modernism,” said Estrellita Brodsky, guest curator.

“It is an honor to be part of this special edition of Untitled Art – a fair I have always admired and followed. It has been ten remarkable years for a fair that is now synonymous with cutting-edge creativity and impeccable curatorial rigor. The fact that the fair has provided an opportunity to collaborate with my esteemed colleague Dr. Estrellita Brodsky to conceptualize and produce a show on Latin American art for its premises makes this collaboration particularly special for me,” said José Falconi, guest curator.
