agnès b.’s Top Picks | Miami Beach 2020
UNTITLED, ART is pleased to introduce a new series of curated selections from the art fair. Cultural tastemakers, international curators, gallerists, and local collectors will be tapped to share their picks from the Online Viewing Rooms of UNTITLED, ART Miami Beach 2020.
Today’s highlighted selection comes from agnès b., French designer and gallerist. See her choices below.
Massimo Vitali, Chidro, C-print mounted Dbond with artist frame and UV plexiglass, 2018.
I love Massimo’s work which I have shown at the Galerie du Jour many times. I have represented him for so many years and I have always enjoyed seeing his work evolve. I had suggested he visit Marseille and I’m happy that the city has become one of the subjects of his beach series.
José Parla, The Construction of Voices, oil paint, acrylic, enamel, and plaster on canvas and wood, 2019.
I have known José for a very long time. I first met him in New York many years ago and he recently sent me the beautiful book from his new exhibition at the Bronx Museum. It’s always a pleasure to see his work.
KATSU, Untitled (Dots), Atomized enamel on acrylic primed canvas, 2020.
I love the Katsu dot paintings. I saw his work at Beyond the Streets in New York last summer. I’ve also seen his graffiti in the streets and I love it. I think these dots have a sense of the euphoria that we need in the times we live now.
Boetti Alighiero, Un Filo di Luce un Filo di Voce, Embroidery on fabric, 1988.
His works are as rare as they are beautiful. I have the great privilege to have one of his hand-woven maps in my collection. It is quite unique as it’s on a pink background.
Josh Spector, Brooklyn, NY, archival inkjet print (Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Pearl), 2019.
I love this picture taken in the NYC underground. It makes me think of a picture by the great Robert Frank that I have shown in an exhibition called “La jeune fille dans la ville.”
Yigal Ozeri, Untitled; A New York Story, oil on canvas, 2019.
I am amused by this painting. It’s funny to imagine the story of this man walking down the street. Maybe he holds an agnès b. bag in his left hand!
UNTITLED, ART Miami Beach OVR is open December 2–6, 2020.
