Contemporary Art Daily
As part of our ongoing sponsorship of Contemporary Art Group, NADA has worked together with the editors of Contemporary Art Daily to present artworks coming to NADA Miami Beach on the popular Contemporary Art Daily tumblr. The pre-fair highlights will be integrated into their coverage of the work in Miami, which will take place shortly after the fair in early December.
On the ground in Miami, Founder of Contemporary Art Daily, Forrest Nash and Managing Editor Bryce Dwyer will be giving tours of NADA Miami Beach to visitors. Working with a list of highlights that will inform Contemporary Art Daily’s coverage, the tour will focus on a small selection of works within the expansive fair.
Contemporary Art Daily was founded in 2008 with a simple premise: to publish the best available documentation of at least one current exhibition every day. Contemporary Art Daily, since 2012, part of the not-for-profit organization Contemporary art Group, now provides a selective overview of the international art world, often bringing otherwise exclusive documentation to free public view online.
