This year, UNTITLED, ART is a virtual reality fair, complete with a pixelated Miami beach outside (which is where it would have taken place). As we maneuver ourselves through the space by using the arrow keys on our computer, we see some stunning art from the comfort of our own homes.

UNTITLED, ART Cutting-Edge Technology is Convincing

UNTITLED, ART is the world’s first virtual reality art fair, and it’s a convincing replica of the actual experience, minus the crowds. We can actually stroll through the aisles as we move from one gallery’s booth to the next, passing by a group of couches as we do so that are, of course, unusable, but speak to the attention to detail in recreating the layout of the tent. The virtual reality also allows for there to be plenty of three-dimensional sculptures in addition to paintings, so we have access to many different genres of art.

With 40 galleries presenting at the fair, one can spend hours browsing the art and talking with sellers through chat tools. It is just as easy, though, to speed through the tent in as short as twenty minutes, as the movement technology is smooth and simple to control. 

As impressive as the virtual reality is, it is not the main event. UNTITLED, ART is filled with art from galleries across the world, from Artspace/Phaidon in New York to El Apartamento in Havana to Harlan Levey Projects in Brussels. With such a wide array of works, there is something for everybody. 

Perhaps you too will especially enjoy the work of Rudy Shepherd (Latchkey Gallery). His series of watercolor portraits depicts a variety of figures such as George Floyd, Toni Morrison, Breonna Taylor, and Anthony Bourdain. Or perhaps you’ll be drawn to Noviembre by Cristina de Miguel (Fredericks & Freiser Gallery), the painting of a boy and wolf-like dog that feels spontaneous in its paint-smattering and lack of line work. Or maybe you’ll find yourself staring into the blue hues of the monotone Strangers in Your Room by Elizabeth Schwaiger (Jane Lombard Gallery).

Although we cannot be there in person, UNTITLED, ART is not one to be missed. At this point, what more can we ask for than a virtual reality that almost feels like actual reality? With simple navigation, world-class artwork, and a quick glimpse at a Miami beach to boot, UNTITLED, ART is recommended to art fans of all kinds.
