Artadia announced today that Meg Cranston will receive the 2013 Artadia NADA New York Award for her presentation at this year’s fair, at the booth of New York’s Fitzroy and Newman Popiashvili galleries. The award comes with a $4,000 unrestricted cash prize that is funded by Artadia and NADA.
Frieze New York 2013
The second edition of NADA will officially open its doors today at 2 p.m., but a crowd of VIPs and press arrived at the riverside fair as early as 9:45 for a special preview. Inside, compliments on the new space (last year NADA was staged in the old Dia Art Foundation building on West 22nd Street) abounded. “It’s pretty great having an art fair in something called ‘Basketball City,’” said dealer Bill Powers upon arriving with Karma owner Brendan Dugan. The fair, which runs through May 12, features 70 exhibitors this year, up from the first iteration’s 60. Many of the exhibitors hail from the nearby Lower East Side gallery district, but others come from the Midwest, West Coast and Europe.

As the art crowd travels to Randall’s Island today for the VIP opening of Frieze New York, the exhibitors in the New Art Dealers Alliance’s second New York fair are putting the finishing touches on their booths. NADA opens tomorrow, May 10, and runs through Sunday, May 10, at Pier 36 at Basketball City, just a touch south of the Lower East Side gallery district.
Frieze Week 2013
In January, news broke that the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) would move its New York fair from the former Dia Art Foundation building on West 22nd Street in Chelsea, where it held its inaugural edition last year, to Pier 36 at Basketball City, at 299 South Street along the East River, below Grand Street on the Lower East Side. Now, The Observer can reveal the exhibitors in its second edition, which runs May 10–12.

Stroll into Clifton Benevento’s booth at NADA to see the two slick new Zak Kitnick metal pieces hanging on their back wall, and chances are you will hear some music coming from around a corner.
“Can you teach me how to dougie?” a man sings. “You know why? ‘Cause all the bitches love me. All I need is a beat that’s super bumping, and for you, you, and you to back it up and dump it!” It’s a snippet of the Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How to Dougie,” and it’s playing on loop in a video by Los Angeles artist D’Ette Nogle.

On the roof of NADA, Exhibition A has set up a “flash gallery” with three wood walls presenting prints by Aurel Schmidt, whose work is on view for the first day of the fair.
Frieze New York 2012
The New Art Dealers Alliance opened its first ever fair in New York City on Friday in the old Dia building in Chelsea, the nonprofit’s fourth event since June of last year. In less than 12 months, it has held fairs in Hudson, N.Y., Miami Beach during Art Basel, and, at the end of April, was a part of Art Cologne as well. This is all the more impressive because NADA’s founder and director, Heather Hubbs, just had a baby about three weeks ago; instead of racing around the building screaming into a walkie-talkie, the typical fair director pose, she was maintaining order while simultaneously making sure her new child didn’t have a meltdown in front of the 60 or so exhibitors.
Frieze New York 2012
Frieze New York may be the main draw this week—it runs May 4-7, with a preview day on May 3—but there are also satellite fairs on offer, including the Miami-fixture NADA (the New Art Dealers Alliance Fair), which will set up shop at the old Dia Art Foundation building at 548 West 22nd Street, from Read More

When Frieze plunks down on Randall’s Island next week, it won’t be the only new art fair in town. The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA), a group founded back in 2002 by a handful of intrepid young New York art dealers, is launching its own 67-exhibitor New York event, in the former Dia Art Foundation building on West 22nd Street.
You might say NADA, an organization that now boasts some 300 members and has run an annual fair in Miami since 2003, is in expansion mode. Last summer it inaugurated a modest fair in Hudson, N.Y. And earlier this month Gallerist visited, for the purposes of leading a panel discussion, the first installment of Nada Cologne, a 33-exhibitor event that took place inside the vast, 186-exhibitor Art Cologne, which, now in its 46th edition, is the world’s oldest art fair.
The New Art Dealers Alliance’s first fair in New York City will feature 60 galleries, including 19 mostly international galleries that have never before shown in the fair’s Miami Beach edition.
