The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is a not-for-profit collective of professionals working with contemporary art. Its mission is to create an open flow of information, support, and collaboration within the arts field and to develop a stronger sense of community among its constituency. Through support and encouragement, NADA facilitates strong and meaningful relationships between its members working with new contemporary and emerging art.
NADA House is the New Art Dealers Alliance’s third off-site exhibition on Governors Island, featuring work by over 100 artists from NADA’s community of galleries, non-profits, artist-run spaces, and curators, across 57 rooms in five neighboring turn-of-the-century Colonial Revival houses. The collaborative, public exhibition is on view every weekend, Friday through Sunday, 11am–5pm from May 8, 2021 to August 1, 2021.
NADA House participants engage with the unique character of the spaces, exhibiting work in a diverse range of mediums including large-scale installations, immersive environments, wall murals, and outdoor sculpture. Numerous artists at NADA House this year will present works that directly respond to the complex history of Governors Island’s colonial, military, and political past, including Camille Hoffman (False Flag); Dagnini and Alexander Shchurenkov (Fragment); Monsieur Zohore and Sandy Williams IV (New Release); and Alix Vernet (Real Pain); among others.
In the areas surrounding the buildings, this year’s exhibition includes NADA House’s largest presentation of outdoor artworks to date, with an audio presentation of sounds works by six Puerto Rican contemporary artists organized by Embajada; and sculptures by Alejandro Almanza Pereda (anonymous gallery), Tamika Rivera (Fort Makers), Adam Parker Smith (The Hole); John Drue Scott Worrell (Gern en Regalia); Rachel Nelson and Erik Zajaceskowski (secret project robot); and others.
