Art Basel is upon us, and one of our favorite fairs to visit is NADA Miami. NADA Miami is the only major American art fair to be produced by a non-profit organization and is recognized as an alternative assembly of the world’s youngest and strongest art galleries dealing with emerging contemporary art.


The 15th edition of the fair, to be held December 7–10, 2017 at Ice Palace Studios. You can purchase tickets here. In the meantime, here are seven booths we’re looking forward to checking out.
