In the Positions sector which allows curators, critics, collectors and visitors to discover new talents from across the globe by providing a platform for galleries to present one major project by a single artist. Here are some young artists you need to keep your eyes peeled out for:
1. Jibade-Khalil Huffman
Huffman will present a new body of work at Anat Ebgi Gallery that focuses on the black male figure in art history, film and literature.
2. Jamal Cyrus
Cyrus will explore the cultural politics of Black American music and the civil rights movement of the 1960s and 1970s at Inman Gallery.
It wouldn't be art if political and social issues were not the generic conversation. This year David Castillo gallery has chosen for its Nova sector three key artists who will be addressing representations of race, sexuality and gender in today's socio-political climate:
1. Kalup Linzy (Live Performance)
2. Lyle Ashton Harris (Photography)
3. Xaviera Simmons (Photography)
