New Art Dealers Alliance and Perez Art Museum Miami Announce Acquisition Gift
The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) and Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) are pleased to announce the NADA Acquisition Gift for PAMM, an acquisition gift for the museum's Permanent Collection that will be selected from the fifteenth edition of NADA Miami 2017, which will take place December 7-10, 2017 at Ice Palace Studios.
For the acquisition gift, NADA provides a fund for PAMM curators, María Elena Ortiz and René Morales, to acquire an artwork for the museum's Permanent Collection. They will make their selection from the artwork displayed by the 108 exhibitors at NADA Miami, who are representing work from 36 cities and 16 different countries.
"We could not be more proud to establish a partnership with PAMM, a progressive and venerable institution for contemporary art in Miami, as we continue to find ways to put down roots in Miami year round," said Heather Hubbs, NADA Executive Director. "This is NADA's first acquisition gift, and we look forward to continuing to provide our exhibitors with opportunities to connect directly with the most influential curators, and collectors, in the art world."
This is an initiative designed to enhance the relationship between the museum and the fair's international roster of exhibiting galleries and artists - as well as an opportunity for NADA to support and engage with the art institutions of Miami-Dade County in new and dynamic ways.
"We are very appreciative of NADA's generous gift to the museum," said PAMM Curator María Elena Ortiz. "With such a variety of exhibitors and works on display from around the world, I look forward to selecting an artwork that will complement PAMM's collection, which highlights Miami's diverse community and pivotal geographic location at the crossroads of the Americas."
Proceeds raised from NADA Miami ticket sales will fund the NADA Acquisition Gift for PAMM, as well as the NADA International Gallery Prize, an initiative supporting first-time exhibitors traveling internationally to exhibit at NADA Miami in 2018.
