NADA Presents is a series of conversations, performances, and events during NADA Miami, December 6–9, 2018 showcasing unique voices in contemporary art and culture. Join us as they share the stage in an eclectic line-up of public programs.
NADA Presents is made possible with Major Support by Snark.art, a digital laboratory for art and technology that taps into the creative possibilities of the blockchain.
Special Projects at NADA Miami 2018 feature sculptures and installations presented by exhibitors and partners. Special Projects at the fair are located in and around the grounds of the Ice Palace Studios—in the garden, around the bathroom, and North Miami Avenue.

NADA Acquisition Gift for PAMM
NADA and Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) are pleased to continue the NADA Acquisition Gift for PAMM, an acquisition gift for the museum’s permanent collection that will be selected from the works exhibited at NADA Miami 2018.
For the acquisition gift, NADA provides a fund for PAMM curators Jennifer Inacio and María Elena Ortiz to acquire an artwork for the museum’s permanent collection.
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.
NADA International Gallery Prize
NADA is delighted to present Arcadia Missa (London) and ASAKUSA (Tokyo) as the 2018 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.
Arcadia Missa presents works by two London-based artists: otherworldly paintings by Lewis Hammond and a sculptural work, “Precious Expressions” (2018), by Reba Maybury, a vitrine filled with objects from a period of performance and labour. Arcadia Missa began as a project space in 2011 and became a gallery representing artists in late 2014. The gallery has been publishing books since 2011.
ASAKUSA presents new works by Russian artist Anton Vidokle and Mexican artist Yoshua Okón. Vidokle presents “Citizens of the Cosmos” (2018), a set of 18 storyboards for his new Cosmist film, and Okón exhibits his new video installation that addresses Tokyo’s ongoing problem of household waste and growing environmental concerns. ASAKUSA was established to promote curatorial collaboration and interdisciplinary practice across borders.
The International Gallery Prize recipients were selected by the NADA Miami 2018 Selection Committee. The prize is supported by visitors of NADA Miami through ticket sales.
