The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) recently held its fair in New York (May 14-17). The fair, reported in Hyperallergic is held on the Lower East Side and most of the artwork reflects the sensibilities of Lower East Side galleries.

“This means a lot of art about art and process, work that often looks sloppy on the outside but has a formal sensibility at heart. There are usually healthy doses of abstraction, weird mash-ups of materials, everyday objects galore, and many pretty colors.”
HA’s overview of the show is heavy on snark (deservedly in the case of a series of Michael Jackson paintings. Yeesh.) and we suggest you read it. We also compiled a group of some of the interesting (good and questionable) ceramics on exhibition during the fair.
