The international, curated art fair, UNTITLED, Art, focuses on balance and integrity across all disciplines of contemporary art. Putting a spin on the standard fair model, UNTITLED, Art, deploys a curatorial team to identify and curate a selection of galleries, artist-run exhibition spaces, and non-profit institutions and organizations in concert with a site-specific architecturally designed venue.


Among the collections that galleries are featuring is an exhibition on the work of New York artist Knox Martin, featured at Todd Merrill’s booth. Martin has allowed unprecedented access to his works dating from the present back to the 1970s; these early works will be available for the first time in decades.


UNTITLED, Art, is partnering with organizations in the Bay Area including UC Berkeley Art Museum, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco, and others. Programming for the second installment of the fair includes large-scale installations, film, video, performances, interactive events and more.
