BERG Contemporary featured by Whitehot magazine and Artsy

BERG Contemporary has been actively taking part in Miami Art week at Untitled, Miami Beach, over the past days and is pleased to be featured by Whitehot Magazine and Artsy in relation to the fair.

As written by Artsy;

„For its fifth edition, UNTITLED returns to its perch on the sandy shores of South Beach with a tightly curated presentation organized by the fair’s artistic director, Omar López-Chahoud, along with curators Christophe Boutin and Melanie Scarciglia. True to form, the light-filled tent will teem with roomy booths from an international group of galleries and nonprofits hailing from some 20 countries, all bringing primarily new work by a diverse range of artists, including pioneers of the avant-garde and on-the-rise MFA grads.

We have our eye on Reykjavík gallery BERG Contemporary and their booth devoted to 1970s glitch-video innovators Steina and Woody Vasulka—in particular, their influential 1974 video Noisefields, a copy of which is also housed in MoMA’s collection.“
