For invitiations to the online edition of UNTITLED, ART Miami Beach 2020, please contact us. We are happy to send you your virtual ticket to our exhibition.


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. The next edition of UNTITLED, ART Miami Beach will take place as an Online Viewing Room, from December 2–6, 2020.


This virtual exhibition will take place within the Artland platform. Rutger Brandt Gallery will represent a viewing room with 20 selected works by Carlos Sagrera, Steffen Kern and Thijs Jansen shown in 2D to scale, in a virtually rendered setting. 


We are proud to exhibit new work by Carlos Sagrera (1987). As in his previous work, the main subject of Sagrera's paintings are interiors; different spaces of a home in which time seems to have stood still. The way in which the the artist depicts these interiors invokes a certain familiarity within the beholder. The spaces evoke associations with the past and as a spectator you wonder if the interiors really existed, or if they are merely created by the artist.


Steffen Kern's (1988) body of work consists of drawings made with ink, charcoal and oil pastels. Kern’s art is permeated by a photographic aesthetic, which he invokes by applying photographic elements such as blooming and depth of field. By drawing on his own memories for inspiration, the artist tries to speak to the beholder's collective pictorial memory. This is why his images often become recognizable to the beholder: we have already seen them in films, photographs, or real life.


In his work, Thijs Jansen (1986) depicts and interprets his own memories of the world. Although the main subjects of his work are everyday objects, the images he creates become ambiguous and permeated by various layers of meaning. The sometimes surprisingly small size of Thijs Jansen's panels does not mean the works can be viewed with a cursory glance. On the contrary. The viewer, wishing to take in all the details - how the light falls, the perspective, the spatial composition, the motifs or the varied painting techniques - of his precisely created compositions, will have to stop and take their time.
