Nada, Pulse and Frieze: Spring Fairs Heat Up New York
By NY Arts
Spring art fairs kick off the first week in May here in New York. Off the heels of March, this season is all about Nada, Frieze and Pulse. At the forefront are emerging galleries, project spaces and blue chips too. This year is especially hot, considering that this is Nada’s first time in its 8 year history to present a NYC fair. And artists and critics alike will love Frieze’s talks, which are lively debates about the state of contemporary art. There is an influx of European art this year at Pulse as Cornell DeWitt comments “PULSE provides a unique platform for exhibitors from around the world to present artists ranging from the well-established, to undiscovered and emerging talents. Interestingly, given the financial uncertainty in Europe, we are seeing an increase in European galleries who are looking to access US-based audiences.” Before the NY art world vacations in the Hamptons or visits Basel, make sure to see these fairs.
The New Art Dealers Alliance is proud to announce that for the first time in it’s eight-year history, NADA will present a fair in New York City, as NADA NYC take place May 4th through 7th, 2012.
