From artnet News:
The 10th edition of the event will also be the biggest it’s ever been, with over 145 international galleries exhibiting and a new section, Nest, which will aim to support emerging galleries, collectives, and non-profits.
But there’s more. This year, Untitled has also tapped four powerhouse guest curators to create special themed shows within the fair: Natasha Becker, Miguel A. López, Estrellita Brodsky, and José Falconi.
Natasha Becker, curator of African Art at the de Young Museum, has organized a section entitled “Reinvention.” This show will feature 10 galleries dedicated to Black voices, and whose curatorial intersections offer an inter-cultural dialogue between artists from Africa, Latin America, Europe, and America. The show aims to transcend the boundaries of North and South, and even past and present, focusing on the idea of the in-between as a space for contemplation.
The presentation will include works from 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.
Becker has also organized several discussions expanding on this curatorial project for an episode of the Untitled Art podcast, touching on themes from Latinx art to climate change.
