Admission is free and open to the public.

The New Art Dealers Alliance is pleased to announce our 2nd edition of NADA Hudson, an exhibition featuring 48 artist projects by NADA members and affiliates. NADA Hudson is not an art fair, but rather a site-specific project organized by the New Art Dealers Alliance. The project builds upon the character of a historic venue, the Basilica Hudson, and showcases contemporary sculpture, installation and video. This year, galleries will present one piece by one artist within the Main Hall, as well as outdoor projects and a looping video program.  The video program is being curated by NADA member Grela Orihuela, executive producer at Wet Heat Projects—an organization that makes documentaries on contemporary art.
