The fact that its running in parallel Art Basel is telling, and as the only major American art fair to be run by a non-profit, NADA positions itself as a kind of anti-fair, promising to “vigorously pursue our goals of exploring new or underexposed art that is not typical of the ‘art establishment’ ”.
First launched in 2003, NADA began with only 35 exhibitors showing in a vacant space. Now, the fair rounds its third year as a major international fair with the Miami Beach location, having already taken over New York and Germany’s Cologne earlier this year. Showing over the course of the four days are a selection of projects, including Future Gallery, Room East, and Rod Barton, as well as ltd los angeles, XYZ collective, Anat Ebgi, and Grand Century.
Alongside the 28 exhibiting projects are approximately 80 exhibitors, including Clearing Gallery, High Art, and Invisible Exports, as well as Overduin & Co., On Stellar Rays, Seventeen Gallery, The Sunday Painter, Galerie Joseph Tang, Temnikova & Kasela, Tomorrow Gallery and The Apartment.
