‘Untitled’ Fair Draws Art Enthusiasts to the Beach

MIAMI—Beyond Art Basel, there are a number of venues offering alternative art fair experiences. Untitled is located in an airy beachfront pavilion housing several dozen international galleries.

Untitled describes itself as a “cutting-edge” art fair showcasing contemporary artists from around the world. The fair is showcasing emerging and established artists, including Jeffrey Gibson who is exhibiting an embellished punching bag and Andres Carranza, whose work is inspired by a near-fatal motorbike accident.

Untitled is on the beachfront at Ocean Drive and 12th Street and runs from Dec. 5 to Dec. 9, 2012.
