“A must for all collectors? The New Art Dealers Alliance’s NADA Miami 2022. It spans 146 galleries, art spaces, and nonprofit organizations from around the world and a special section curated by Joeonna Bellorado-Samuels.” – Alia Akkam, Architectural Digest

“They are excited to go to NADA to find out not just who’s just coming up next, but more about what’s in the zeitgeist and what’s percolating.” – Joeonna Bellorado-Samuels in an interview with Harrison Jacobs, ARTNews

“This showcase for emerging galleries and independent curators run by the nonprofit New Art Dealers Alliance, or NADA, started in Miami a year after its showier sibling Art Basel, with just 35 exhibitors. Now in its 20th edition with 146 galleries, art spaces and nonprofits from more than 40 cities, NADA Miami — held at Ice Palace Studios near the Design District — retains its quirkier, more down-to-earth vibe.” – Hilarie M. Sheets, The New York Times

“Two decades into the boundary-breaking fair’s tenure, it’s hard not to marvel at the numbers: 146 exhibitors (up from barely 50 in its founding year) from more than 40 cities fill the Miami film studio, each with a distinctive approach to overhauling the outdated standards of art selling and exhibition.” – Rachel Small, Cultured

“By midday, dealers were happily sharing a flood of sales. While buying at Art Basel—especially when it came to pricey six- and seven-figure works—was slower-paced and more thoughtful at its opening day, the lower price points at NADA, which tend to be in the four and five figures, seemed to be sparking confidence and demand.” – Eileen Kinsella, artnet News
