NADA Acquisition Gift for PAMM
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 works exhibited at NADA Miami 2019.
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 Artadia Award
NADA and Artadia are pleased to present the NADA Artadia Award at NADA Miami 2019. This will be the 12th 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 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.
NADA x Daata Digital Art Comissions
NADA and Daata Editions, the online hub for digital artwork, are pleased to announce a new partnership to commission video art from three artists, each from a NADA Member gallery: Molly Soda at Jack Barrett gallery, Jibade-Khalil Huffman at Anat Ebgi Gallery and Jess Johnson & Simon Ward at Jack Hanley Gallery. The works will be debuted by Daata at NADA Miami, December 5–8, and available to stream and purchase as at Daata.art.
The works included in the inaugural installment include new commissions by Puerto Rican born artist Molly Soda whose work grapples with our post-social media society; Jibade-Khalil Huffman an artist and writer whose video and photo works use found, archival material and contemporary ephemera to address slippage in memory and language, particular to race and visibility; and Jess Johnson & Simon Ward together explore the speculative intersections between language, science fiction, culture, and technology through varied practices including animation, virtual reality, comedy and video.
