NEW YORK—This weekend, the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) held one of the satellite fairs scheduled to coincide with Frieze New York. NADA is a nonprofit organization that supports dealers who promote emerging contemporary artists. Held in the Chelsea gallery district, more than 60 dealers from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris and Tokyo participated. While the galleries are geographically diverse, the artists represented lack cultural diversity. Shown on three floors, the work is refined (Sarah Crowner’s wood sculpture, shown above at Nichelle Beauchene Gallery in New York), innovative (Lucas Ajemian’s ladder/film reel installation at Ltd. los angeles) and found (Yuji Agematsu’s chewing gum studies at Real Fine Arts in Brooklyn).
The NADA Fair runs from May 4 to May 7, 2012 at Center 548 on West 22nd Street. Today is the last day.
