The fifth edition of NADA New York, an art fair showcasing emerging art from around the world, opens tomorrow evening at Basketball City.
The event is a production of New Art Dealers Alliance, an organization with strong representation among Lower East Side galleries. This year there are 105 exhibitors from 18 countries, and 28 project spaces.

Between MVP galleries and rookies alike, NADA offers a glimpse of the young, experimental side of the international contemporary art world, and perhaps a taste of what will be at Frieze or Art Basel next year. The youthful vibe extends to the soundtrack; this year NADA will feature invited artists Michael Bauer, Melissa Brown, Andrew Kuo, Denise Kupferschmidt, Michael Mahalchick, Annie Pearlman, and Ben Vida on the decks spinning records from 2pm and 4pm daily. Taking inspiration from its location, NADA also offers the NADA Hoops Know Wave 3-on-3 Streetball Tournament: with pick-up basketball games on Thursday and Friday on a court designed by artist Michael Genovese, culminating in a tournament on Saturday. You can also pick up an artist-designed limited-edition basketball by Tyson Reeder.
