NADA Miami Beach 2014 Will Be the Anti-Art Basel

The art fair sees 15 new exhibitors, and at least one Art Basel bounce-back.

The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) has just announced its exhibitor list for the 12th edition of NADA Miami Beach. The art fair, which will take place from December 4–7 at the Deauville Beach Resort, will feature over 90 exhibitors with a little over 40 from New York, and including 36 international galleries, along with 15 exhibitors that are new to the fair.

There are around twenty New York exhibitors that are not returning this year, including Churner + Churner, James Fuentes, the Hole, Horton (which merged earlier this year with ZieherSmith), Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery, Joe Sheftel, Kerry Schuss, Simone Subal, Kate Werble, Feature Inc. (the gallery’s founder, Hudson, died earlier this year), Andrew Edlin, Clifton Benevento, the Still House Group, Know More Games, Recess, and Devon Dikeou. Some, like Clifton Benevento and Simone Subal, are doing Art Basel in Miami Beach this year. Some are not making it to Miami at all this year. Kate Werble said she is attending two fairs in Europe in October—London’s SUNDAY Art Fair and the new FIAC satellite (Off)icielle—and her gallery just underwent an expansion. Some New York galleries that did not partake last year but are exhibiting this year are Bodega, Chapter NY, the Lodge Gallery, Grand Century, Koenig & Clinton, Kai Matsumiya, Simon Preston, Regina Rex, and Tomorrow.

“Galleries apply to multiple fairs with multiple types of projects,” Maggie Clinton of Koenig & Clinton told artnet News. “The project we applied with to Art Basel Miami Beach was waitlisted.” While the gallery has participated numerous times in NADA Miami Beach, it did Art Basel Miami Beach last year. This year, it is participating in NADA and Untitled. But she said that their decision about which fairs to attend related more to the formats of the various fairs. “I think that NADA is an excellent format for emerging artists. Untitled is really great for curatorial projects. We have an artist that will be featured at the fair, and it’s the type of project that could not be shown at any of the other fairs.”

Other advantages NADA has over the larger fair? “You’re not going to see way too much stuff,” Clinton said. “There’s not a huge discrepancy between larger booths and smaller booths.” While she noted the benefit of the larger audience at a larger fair, she said there was less chance of falling victim to so-called “fairtigue.” “You also have this moment in between, because of the architecture, to just have a coffee, and stop and see more art.”
