From Dec 3rd through Dec 7th, 2008. The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) presents the 6th edition of the NADA Art Fair in Miami. Featuring 88 emerging art galleries from 18 countries, the NADA Art Fair is renowned for its diverse, high quality group of exhibitors as well as its unique atmosphere in the vast sound stages and gardens of the Ice Palace Studios, where the fair has been held since 2004. The fair is open and free to the public from Wednesday, December 3rd from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Thursday to Saturday, December 4th through 6th from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; and Sunday, December 7th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Shuttle service will be available from South Beach to the Ice Palace for the duration of the fair and the Opening Night Preview.
This year’s schedule begins on Tuesday, December 2nd at 4:00 p.m., with the opening night preview benefiting New Museum, New York and sponsored by Banana Republic. The NADA Art Fair Preview celebrates what NADA and the New Museum are all about: the next generation of artists and what is happening now in contemporary art around the globe. Individual tickets for the preview benefit and concert are available to purchase online at www.newmuseumstore.org, or at the door.
In honor of their sponsorship, Banana Republic will be producing six exclusive limited edition tote bags featuring artwork from six artists exhibiting at the NADA art fair. These tote bags will be sold at the opening night benefit and throughout the run of the NADA Art Fair. Banana Republic has generously donated all the tote bags to NADA and New Museum, who will retain 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the totes to support their organizations.
All exhibitors participating in the fair were invited to submit artwork of their represented artists, and a panel of representatives from New Museum and Banana Republic decided on the winning artists from over 85 submissions. The six artists include Chris Caccamise from Eleven Rivington in New York, Kon Trubkovich from Museum 52 in London/New York, Slawek Pawszak from Czarna Galeria in Poland, Olivier Babin from Frank Elbaz Gallery in Paris, Shinro Ohtake from Take Ninagawa in Tokyo and William O’Brien from Shane Campbell Gallery in Chicago. In addition, a special tote will be produced with artist Ugo Rondinone’s signature “Hell Yes!” artwork.
