AGUAS to Serve as Guest Curator of the 2018 Edition of Untitled, Miami Beach

Untitled, Art announced that AGUAS, the artist-run curatorial platform founded by artist Rodrigue Mouchez in 2017, will be the guest curator of the seventh edition of its Miami Beach fair, which will take place from December 5 to December 9. AGUAS will work with Untitled executive director Manuela Mozo and artistic director Omar Lopez-Chahoud to curate a selection of international galleries and to develop a series of special artist projects that will be integrated throughout the fair.

“When considering a curatorial guest for Untitled, Miami Beach I wanted to incorporate the collaborative energy that has recently surfaced in the art world,” Mozo said. “Collaborations such as the international gallery exchange of Condo; Ruberta the collaborative exhibition space in Glendale, CA; gallery timeshares by VACATION in New York; and the nonprofit exhibition spaces of JOAN in Los Angeles all reflect a spirit of generosity, innovation, and the necessity to address some of the current issues facing artists and galleries. These inspiring models led us to our own collaboration with AGUAS.” 

AGUAS was founded in 2017 with the intent to create a cultural and artistic bridge between artist communities in Europe and Latin America. AGUAS’s recent curatorial projects include the group exhibition “Agua del día,” which features work by Martin Belou, Julie Escoffier, Francisco Muñoz, Javier Peñalosa, and Ling Sepúlveda, among others, and was on view at El Quinto Piso, Mexico City, earlier this year. The show will eventually travel to Brussels’s Bâtiment Vanderborght.

“AGUAS’s projects are initiated by artists and focus more on their processes than on the commercial value of the works, considering the production of the works and the exhibition as a whole,” Mouchez said.
