Another strong satellite fair seen during this year’s Basel Week Miami was certainly Untitled. Showing a diverse selection of contemporary works, the roster included 119 international galleries, not-for-profit exhibition spaces and institutions from over 20 countries.
From familiar and well established names to young, new emerging talents from around the globe, the fair included paintings, installations, sculptures as well as performance art pieces. Aside from classic works by Barry Mcgee, Claire Rojas, Jen Stark, Daniel Arsham or Ed Moses, Untitled introduced us to some new names and fresh images and concepts. Some of the standout pieces for the author of this recap were abstract portraiture pieces by James Esber, large abstract pieces based on small charcoal drawings by Francisco Ugarte, paper collages by Jim Gaylord, colorful and intricate figurative works by Hope Gangloff, Austin Lee’s huge quadtych and head sculptures, Devin Troy Strother’s neon and mixed media basketball influenced pieces, Michael Staniak’s mind boggling works, Inti Hernandez’s visual illusion construction models, Jill Georg Dokoupil’s bubble paintings, Hassan Hajjaj’s photographs and the raw and peculiar large portrait by Taylor McKimens.
