NADA Fundraising Edition by Mark Thomas Gibson

The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is pleased to present a new limited-edition print by artist Mark Thomas Gibson in support of NADA’s year-round programming.

“A portrait of a klansman two feet under in a shallow grave. We all can imagine who he is to us. Insert your own narrative here and hang it on your wall. Frame the condemnation of White Supremacy on your wall. It is a statement about where one stands.

‘Everyone Should Have One on Their Wall: Sunset’ is part of a larger project, ‘Everyone Should Have One On Their Wall,’ a series of objects produced in several mediums and scales in an attempt to find themselves physically present in the lives of others. In its ability to reinterpret history through repetition, imagery, and narrative language, Art has the power to remake history. This is the case with White Supremacy in western culture as it relates to race. Too often, images project sacrifice, martyrdom and cruelty, shifting the viewer into a sense of inactivity or voyeuristic acceptance on the matter. This piece combats the persistence of this memory, and creates a new narrative in its place.” – Mark Thomas Gibson

The edition was printed in collaboration with NADA Member EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, New York. Mark Thomas Gibson is represented by NADA Gallery Members M+B, Los Angeles and LOYAL, Stockholm.

NADA House 2021 Call for Proposals

NADA is now accepting applications for the third edition of NADA House, May 8 – August 1, 2021. The collaborative, public exhibition on Governors Island will take place in an expanded format across over 50 rooms in three neighboring turn-of-the-century Colonial Revival buildings. The deadline to apply is Friday, February 26th.

Galleries, non-profits, and artist-run spaces are invited to propose an artist for this collaborative format that will engage the unique character of the spaces, and understand the public nature of this exhibition and its audiences. NADA encourages proposals such as large-scale sculptural installations, immersive environments, or wall murals that take full advantage of the spaces and this public setting. As Governors Island has existed as a small community alongside, yet distinctly separate from the metropolis of New York City for many years, this project presents an unusual exciting context for artists to display their work.
