Looking for NADA New York Art Fair? Not sure if it's in March or May this year? NADA (New Art Dealers Alliance) has discontinued its popular New York art fair in favor of keeping the art closer to its member art galleries. For 2019, expect the debut of "New York Gallery Open" where NADA puts the focus on 50 art galleries, non-profits and alternative spaces set across New York City as a new way to serve its membership and the art viewing public.
New York Gallery Open is timed to coincide with Armory Show Art Week and will be held March 4 to 10, 2019. In addition to spotlighting the 50 NYC art spaces, the event will include around nine national or international galleries exhibiting in New York City galleries. Participating galleries outside of NYC include Shane Campbell Gallery and Patron (both from Chicago); ltd los angeles (Los Angeles); Franz Kaka (Toronto); LOYAL (Stockholm) and others.
Programming begins on Monday, March 4, 2019 and continues through Sunday, March 10, 2019. Programming includes opening receptions, live music, coffee talks, exhibition tours and performance. Click here for the list.
Most of the galleries can be found on the Lower East Side (19) including Jack Barrett Gallery who hosts seven out-of-town galleries. Click here to discover galleries and events taking place on the Lower East Side.
Next door, set across Chinatown, Nolita, The Bowery and Tribeca, are 20 participating galleries. They include Howl!; Martos Gallery, Kate Werble Gallery and more. Click here for the list.
There are five galleries in Chelsea (click here); two on the Upper East Side (Johanna Vogt & Disturb the Neighbors plus the High Line. Click here for details.) and seven galleries set in Queens or Brooklyn (Click here for the list).
NADA is optimistic that art fans will divert from the art fairs and attend events and view art during this inaugural initiative.
“In some ways, New York functions like a year-round art fair," NADA Executive Director Heather Hubbs stated in an announcement. Galleries host exhibitions which are open and accessible to the public all year. With the New York Gallery Open, we’re placing the focus on gallery exhibitions in their spaces across the city during the March Art Week. It’s in these essential places where galleries develop their programs.”
