The fair returns to the sands of Miami Beach for its most international show to date, focusing on collaboration across the local and global art community
Fair Dates: Tuesday, November 29 – Saturday, December 3, 2022
VIP & Press Preview: Monday, November 28
Miami Beach, FL. September 6, 2022 – Untitled Art is pleased to announce the list of over 140 international galleries and non-profit arts organizations participating in its 11th and most international edition to date. Taking place from November 29 to December 3, 2022 on the sands of Miami Beach at Ocean Drive and 12th Street, the independently-owned fair will feature presentations by an international group of leading and undiscovered contemporary artists.
Untitled Art will return with compelling booth presentations, site-specific installations, and performances as part of an expanded curatorial platform spearheaded by Artistic Director Omar López-Chahoud. Guided by a mission to support the wider art ecosystem, this year’s fair will focus on collaboration across the local and global art community. Participants have been selected for their curatorial integrity and international reach, and the fair’s curation will facilitate interesting juxtapositions and discussions between galleries, artists, and non-profits from 31 countries.
‘Nest’, a progressive sector introduced in 2021, returns for a second year in support of young and emerging galleries. Developed in response to the economic impact of the pandemic, ‘Nest’ provides subsidized booths to 21 emerging galleries and non-profits to mitigate the traditional entry barriers associated with art fair participation
In consideration of Untitled Art’s location, the fair’s team has ensured representation of leading Miami-based galleries within its exhibitor’s list and ongoing engagement with local institutions, including first-time participant [NAME], an organization that creates books with an emphasis on showcasing practices often marginalized in dominant art and design histories. Other Miami- based galleries include Dimensions Variable, Emerson Dorsch, and Jupiter Contemporary.
The first to launch a virtual reality art fair in response to the pandemic, Untitled Art continuously invests in new technologies to make contemporary art collecting more accessible to new audiences. This year, Untitled Art brings on Vortic as its Digital Partner. Vortic will create 3D and VR experiences as an extension of ‘Nest’ to provide a curated digital exhibition, as well as sponsor the fair’s ‘Nest Prize.’
Untitled Art’s Founder and Director Jeffrey Lawson says: “For this year’s edition of Untitled Art, we are looking to stage an ambitious and forward-thinking presentation that reconsiders the role of an art fair in today’s cultural landscape. In response to the growing commercialization of the art world, we are prioritizing collaboration, and inclusivity, and providing space for collectors, art historians, curators, writers, and academics to interact, learn and discover. We are excited to return with our strongest and most international program yet.”

About Untitled Art
Founded in 2012, Untitled Art is the leading independent contemporary art fair taking place annually on the sands of Miami Beach. Guided by a mission to support the wider art ecosystem, Untitled Art offers an inclusive platform for discovering contemporary art that prioritizes collaboration within each aspect of the fair.
Through critical and educational programming, from a robust on-site podcast series focusing on relevant industry topics and artist talks to events and community activations outside of the fair itself, Untitled Art attracts contemporary art collectors, art professionals, curators, art historians and critics, among other enthusiasts. It also celebrates the context in which the fair is held by promoting leading galleries from Miami and engaging with local institutions. To reduce its environmental impact, Untitled Art works closely with the City of Miami Beach to ensure a zero-impact presentation and reuses its custom-designed tent for each edition. In 2022, Untitled Art will also reignite its ‘writers-in-residence’ program to support the crucial advancement of art criticism while cultivating the next generation of writers.
