Acquisition Gift

NADA and Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) are pleased to announce the NADA Acquisition Gift for PAMM, an acquisition gift for the museum’s permanent collection that will be selected from the fifteenth edition of NADA Miami, which will take place December 7-10, 2017 at Ice Palace Studios.

For the acquisition gift, NADA provides a fund for PAMM curators, María Elena Ortiz and René Morales, to acquire an artwork for the museum’s permanent collection. They will make their selection from the artwork displayed by the 108 exhibitors at NADA Miami, who are representing work from 36 cities and 16 different countries.

This is an initiative designed to enhance the relationship between the museum and the fair’s international roster of exhibiting galleries and artists — as well as an opportunity for NADA to support and engage with the art institutions of Miami-Dade County in new and dynamic ways.

Proceeds raised from NADA Miami ticket sales will fund the NADA Acquisition Gift for PAMM, as well as the NADA International Gallery Prize, an initiative supporting first-time exhibitors traveling internationally to exhibit at NADA Miami in 2018.

Aspen Insurance Project Grant

NADA is proud to announce a partnership with Aspen Insurance to sponsor the Aspen Insurance Project Grant, debuting this year at NADA Miami.

The Grant will be awarded to an exhibitor in the NADA Projects section of the fair, inviting the recipient to occupy a complimentary small booth in the Galleries section the following year. NADA Projects are designed to highlight small-scale presentations from emerging galleries and independent organizations. This new partnership between NADA and Aspen Insurance will help support the growth and development of the grant recipient.

The Aspen Insurance Project Grant is sponsored by Aspen Insurance, the insurance segment of Aspen Insurance Holdings Limited which is a leading global (re)insurance company that offers coverage from 11 countries around the world.

Gallery Prize

New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is delighted to announce CARNE Gallery (Bogotá) and Dawid Radziszewski (Warsaw) as the 2017 recipients of the second annual NADA Miami International Gallery Prize.

The initiative awards galleries based outside the United States a distinctive platform to participate in NADA Miami for the first time in a sponsored booth, furthering NADA’s global mission of cultivation, support, and advancement of new and relevant voices in contemporary art.

The artist-run CARNE Gallery will present work that explores the notions of unproductiveness, hyper-consumerism and leisure as spaces for resistance and life, featuring four Bogotá-based artists: Adriana Martinez, Santiago Pinyol, Mariana Murcia, Juan Sebastian Pelaez.

Dawid Radziszewki’s presentation will explore the figure of the artist and the body of the artist by juxtaposing the works of two Polish artists from different generations: Adam Rzepecki (b. 1950) and Tomasz Kowalski (b. 1984).

The 2017 International Gallery Prize recipients were selected by the NADA Miami 2017 Selection Committee. The prize is supported by visitors of NADA Miami through ticket sales.

NADA Artadia Award

NADA and Artadia are pleased to be presenting the NADA Artadia Award at NADA Miami. This will be the tenth time NADA and Artadia have partnered to give unrestricted funds to an artist exhibiting at the fair.

Two nationally renowned curators will select one artist exhibiting at the fair to receive an unrestricted, merit-based award of $5,000. The chosen artist will have access to the lifetime of benefits of the Artadia Awards program, including participation in the innovative Art & Dialogue series, exhibition opportunities, studio visits with curators and collectors, and access to ongoing professional services.

The NADA Artadia Award acknowledges innovative voices working in contemporary art today. This unique collaboration highlights the ways in which non-profit organizations can come together to celebrate artist excellence during an art fair.
