New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) in Miami, FL

After a one year pandemic based hiatus, I was absolutely thrilled to be in Miami for Art Basel week. I had my time planned carefully as many of the shows required reservations this year. I don’t like to miss out on anything.

My first stop after dropping off my luggage was to the Ice Palace Studios where the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) fair has been held the past few years. It has a great outdoor area to get coffee, food, or lay in a hammock, and the people watching is spectacular. You can read my NADA post from two years ago here.

After drinking two double espressos and showing my vaccine card, I walked in. Four and a half hours later, I went outside to take off my mask and get some warm air and sunshine. The hours had flown by.

Laurent Dufour
Glazed ceramic
Lefebvre Et Fils

My favorite gallery of work was Lefebvre Et Fils from Paris. Laurent Dufour’s ceramic pieces were stunning. I loved everything about them.

I thought a gallery, from Lima, PE, had the most innovative wall material. What a cool looking space!

Michael Janssen Gallery

I liked how the gallery from Berlin added space to their booth by creating an extra wall!

I took a Lyft back to Miami Beach and met up with my brother and sister-in-law (I always refer to them as Herb and Dorothy), who had just arrived in town. We settled into our AirBnB and stopped into the art fair Untitled for a sneak peak. I went back on Saturday and will fill you in on that soon. We had a great dinner at Abbale Telavivian Kitchen after first getting cocktails at Swizzle. Herb always finds the best places. I highly recommend both.
