An aqnb guide to ‘Untitled, Art’ in San Francisco

, 11 January 2017

Untitled, Art is presenting its San Francisco edition at venues across the Californian city, opening January 13 and running to January 15.

Founded in 2012, the contemporary international art fair brings together a selection of galleries, artist-run spaces, organizations and non-profit institutions. This is the first edition in San Francisco, with curators Christophe Boutin, Omar López-Chahoud, and Melanie Scarciglia bringing together a diverse series of partnerships, working closely with Bay Area institutions like Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art and 500 Capp Street, among others.

Independent art fair Mind Control will also be running alongside Untitled at San Francisco’s Alter Space, with participating galleries SPF15,  Y2K Gallery, and bug among others.  The weekend event will host exhibitions, outdoor and site-specific installations, workshops, radio shows and more.

There will also be Tote bags for sale designed by Rirkrit Tiravanija and Ebecho Muslimova.


Untitled, Monuments is the section of the fair that features large-scale work and site-specific installation.


Launched in 2010, artists Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari are collaborating again to create an immersive and communal space that brings together a “twisted narrative tableaux and surrealist imagery.”
