This event has ended.

The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA)presents NADA House, the organization’s second off-site exhibition on Governors Island, featuring 45 artists from NADA Member galleries and non-profits in a new, expanded format across 34 rooms in three historic, turn-of-the-century Colonial Revival houses.

The collaborative, public exhibition will be on view every weekend, Friday through Sunday, 11am–5pm from May 2, 2019 to August 4, 2019.

The exhibition will be free and open to the public, with monthly programmatic activations and performances.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Governors Island, a New York City landmark with a rich history,” said NADA Executive Director Heather Hubbs. “These types of collaborations are crucial in presenting new formats for our members to showcase contemporary art — ones that highlight artists’ work in unique environments.”
The second edition of the Governors Island exhibition comes as part of NADA’s expanded commitment to year-round programming. Most recently, NADA held the New York Gallery Open, a new initiative designed to bring visitors, collectors, curators and critics to over 50 art spaces across New York City for public tours, talks, performances, and more.
NADA House is an opportunity for NADA members to stage a group show in an intimate and unusual setting, with only one or two artists on display in each room. NADA House reflects the camaraderie intrinsic to NADA’s mission, and exemplifies the organization’s adaptive approach to finding new models to present work from its community.
Responding to the unique context of Governors Island and the specific character of these houses, many participating artists will present work that speaks to the island’s changing identity over time – from its origins as Lenape land occupied by Native Americans of the Manhattan region to its role in the Revolutionary War, and later from its use by the US Army and Coast Guard to its current state as a site for artistic, scientific, and urban experimentation.

Friday through Sunday, 11am–5pm.

Closing Reception on 2019-08-03 from 13:00 to 14:00
