Miami art fair week kicked off on Tuesday. One of the many art fairs and exhibitions happening in the city was NADA Art Fair. NADA, the New Art Dealers Alliance, delivers what the name suggests – new, young and exciting galleries and art from as many as 19 countries. With 88 “emerging galleries” presenting, I concentrated on documenting the galleries from the Art Beat world – New York and Tokyo – but not exclusively for this report.
