Also celebrating its 20th edition, the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) Miami fair brings together small and mid-size galleries presenting an exciting selection of emerging and mid-career artists. Located in Downtown Miami, the fair embraces the warm climate with outdoor lounging areas where visitors can relax and enjoy a robust series of panels, music performances, workshops, and artist talks.

A highlight of the fair will be Sapar Contemporary's booth (7.12), featuring a new series of acrylic prints by Zinaida, entitled "She." The artist completed these works in Kyiv in June 2022 under constant bombing and limited access to electricity. The woman in "She" wears a costume that symbolizes eternal, divine femininity and contains references to Ukrainian, Greek, Berber, Arabic, Bulgarian, and Jewish cultures. Another highlight will be Shulamit Nazarian's booth (6.02), which celebrates gallery artists with recent or upcoming career milestones (for instance, Maria A. Guzmán Capron's SECA award and exhibition "Respira Hondo,"which opens December 17th at SFMOMA).

NADA will also host its third Curated Spotlight section, featuring eight solo presentations of artists from NADA galleries, selected by a renowned curator. This year's grouping was selected by Joeonna Bellorado-Samuels, director of Jack Shainman Gallery and founder of the roving gallery We Buy Gold. Included in the Curated Spotlight is Olympia (7.03), which will present new dreamy, egg tempera paintings by Lee Maxey.
