Untitled Art Fair: New Kid On The Basel Block

Dec 8, 2012

The UNTITLED art fair is the new kid on the Basel block. It's the event’s first year.

The fair itself has a distinctly South Florida feel to it. The large, airy white tent has soft, filtered lighting and looks out over the ocean. Adding to the Miami vibe are the girls wandering around promoting various kinds of alcohol by handing out freebies.

Among them were the Hendricks gin girls, Jacqueline Sanabia and Kezia Linden, who, I thought, were wearing some pretty snazzy little hats.

“This is my first time [working at an art show],” said Linden. “I love working at an art fair. You get to see all the art and behind the scenes.”

There’s plenty to see in front of the scenes as well. My favorite was a piece by Martin Roth which represents to me, a South Beach resident, an enviable-sized lawn.

Admission is $13 for Miami Beach residents and $23 for everyone else. UNTITLED is located on the beach directly east of 12th street and stays open through Sunday.
