Art worlds collide at the NADA Art Fair in Miami next week. The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is set for its sixth installment of the internationally renowned event, which will feature works from 88 budding art galleries and 19 different countries. An Opening Night Preview will inaugurate this year’s fair while serving as a benefit to the New Museum on Bowery in NYC. Casiotone for the Painfully Alone headlines the open bar benefit, a fit primer to four days of cutting edge contemporary art exhibits.

Artist: Casiotone for the Painfully Alone
Track: Bobby Malone Moves Home


[Editor's note: Half off admission at 8PM is available with the flier located at the end of this story. Ticket includes fair entrance and open bar till close.]

NADA and the New Museum unite in celebrating the next generation of artists around the world. They both render a valuable cultural service by providing exposure to high level contemporary art amidst attempts to broaden access. In their inspired efforts to integrate music with the visual arts, the performance stage was designed by the artist collective SIMPARCH, ensuring the convergence of sight and sound. The venue for all this jubilation is the cavernous confines of the Ice Palace Film Studios complete with five sound stages and a 30,000 square foot lawn. Tickets to the delectable Opening Night Preview at the Ice Palace are available at

The Fair itself will commence the following afternoon and run through December 7th at the same location in North Miami. Admission is free and open to the public.
