About NADA House
The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is pleased to present the third edition of NADA House, returning to Governors Island with 66 galleries, non-profits, artist-run spaces, and curators, presenting over 100 artists. The collaborative, public exhibition will take place May 8 – August 1, 2021 in an expanded format. Gallery presentations will be in over 50 rooms in three neighboring turn-of-the-century colonial revival buildings.
NADA House participants will engage with the unique character of the spaces, exhibiting work in a diverse range of mediums including large-scale installations, immersive environments, wall murals, and outdoor sculpture. Numerous artists at NADA House this year will present works that directly respond to the complex history of Governors Island’s colonial, military, and political past. In the areas surrounding the buildings, this year’s exhibition will include NADA House’s largest presentation of outdoor artworks to date, with an audio presentation of sounds works by six Puerto Rican contemporary artists organized by Embajada; and sculptures by Alejandro Almanza Pereda (anonymous gallery), Tamika Rivera (Fort Makers), Adam Parker Smith (The Hole); John Drue Scott Worrell (Gern en Regalia); Rachel Nelson and Erik Zajaceskowski (secret project robot); and others.
About The Arts Center at Governor’s Island
