ABOUT THE FAIR
ABOUT THE FAIR
Untitled, Art is an international, curated art fair founded in 2012 that focuses on curatorial balance and integrity across all disciplines of contemporary art. Untitled, Art innovates the standard fair model by selecting a curatorial team to identify, and curate a selection of galleries, artist-run exhibition spaces, and non-profit institutions and organizations, in dialogue with an architecturally designed venue. Since 2014 the curatorial team has consisted of Artistic Director Omar López-Chahoud with curators Christophe Boutin and Melanie Scarciglia. Untitled, Miami Beach will take place on the beach at Ocean Drive and 12th Street, November 30 – December 4, 2016.

JACCO OLIVIER (NL, 1972) works and lives in Amsterdam. Olivier attended the Rijksakademie and defines himself as a true painter, which is not always noticeable in his work. He uses video techniques to explore the process and act of painting. The moving images in his screenings show the process he went through as a painter and offers a journey through the many layers of paint on his canvas. Although his early works contain many realistic elements, Olivier sets no thematic agenda for the works or for their relationship to one another.
Olivier has been featured in recent solo exhibitions at Indianapolis Museum of Art, IN; GEM, The Hague, The Netherlands; Madison Square Park, New York; Centro de Arte de Caja de Burgos, Spain; and Blaffer Art Museum, Houston, TX, among others. He has been included in group exhibitions at various institutions, including Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA; Rijksmuseum Twenthe, Enschede, The Netherlands; 56th Venice Biennale, Italy; 8th SITE Santa Fe biennial, NM; and MCA Denver, CO.
SEBASTIAAN BREMER (NL, 1970) works and lives in New York. Bremer works with photography and developed a style in which he uses different techniques to add an extra layer on the image. He continuously stretches the limits of photography and explores its endless possibilities. Painting, drawing, carving used in combination with photography, which he randomly finds, selects or owns. In the current times where everyone seems to be a photographer, Bremer brings back the artistic signature in photography by manually adjusting the image with paint, pen and encryptions.
Bremer’s work is part of several collections, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, UK; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; AKZO Nobel Collection, The Netherlands; and the Burger Collection. His artwork has been exhibited at the Tate Modern, London, UK; the Brooklyn Museum of Art, MoMA PS1, New York; GEM, The Hague, The Netherlands.
INTI HERNANDEZ (CU, 1976) Hernandez settled in Amsterdam after a residency at the Rijksakademie. Last year Hernandez was presented at UNTITLED. The tense relation between Cuba and the US is important for him, he divides his time in between Amsterdam and Cuba. Hernandez uses his art as a medium to create conversation and dialogue. Drawing a lot from his experiences with cultural changes and trying to build a common ground between his audience and himself. The result is a form of an encounter that tries to trigger self-reflection. His work brings people together in a non-biased setting.
He is a frequent guest at the Havana Biennial. His work is part of the collection of the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Cuba; Beth Rudin DeWoody, USA; and Museum Voorlinden, Wassenaar, The Netherlands. Hernandez has had solo exhibitions at Wilfredo LAM Centre, Cuba; Cifo Art Space, USA; the Ludwig Foundation, Cuba; and de Appel arts centre, The Netherlands amongst others.
