This year, a few new things were in order for the New Art Dealers Alliance. One, their fair, typically held during Frieze week in May, inched up the schedule to coincide with last week’s blue-chip behemoth, “The Art Show,” at the Park Avenue Armory, as well as the Independent fair held at Spring Studios. Secondly, the non-profit arts organization relocated from their previous venue, Basketball City, on the Lower East Side piers, to the airy Skylight Clarkson North in the West Village, close to venerable galleries like Maccarone and Greenspon. But what stayed consistent for NADA, as we saw over the weekend, was its place as a forum and incubator for up-and-coming dealers and emerging young artists. Among the exhibitors were homegrown New York art spaces such as Essex Flowers, 56 Henry, Signal, and Shoot the Lobster, as well as a host of international galleries. A schedule of screenings, panels, and performance was presented in collaboration with Kickstarter, featuring the work of FlucT, a talk by Jacolby Satterwhite that aired live on Know Wave, and a discussion hosted by Bruce High Quality Foundation University.
