For the last day of the Art Basel festivities, yesterday saw us float through the ballrooms of the historic Deauville Beach Resort in North Miami Beach for NADA Art Fair 2009. After reading the line up for the fair we were convinced that NADA would be our pick and although it was much smaller than we expected the show was at a very high standard.

Showing works from galleries such as SUNDAY LES, White Columns, Country Club and Pool Gallery we saw some familiar works from Agathe Snow, Rita Ackermann and Nate Lowman, but we also got introduced to some great new works from artists we were not so familiar with, which is always exciting and I guess is the fundamental reason behind these fairs. Hence, NADA, standing for New Art Dealers Association. Also on offer was a fantastic selection of books and magazines; Whitehot Magazine, Moon Milk by Ryan McGinley, Morel Books and Journal magazine.

The Swiss Institute gallery had a perfect idea to sell limited edition prints from artists, some x50 and some one-off’s all under the thousand dollar mark. All were sold out and they were busy.

Below is our personal coverage from NADA Art Fair 2009.
