NADA New York, the young darling of the contemporary art fair world, returns for their sixth edition this year to a new location and schedule. Previously held at Basketball City down by the East River, their new home at Skylight Clarkson North in Soho West was a nice change up, with light-filled expansive spaces and a much more convenient locale. They also shifted their usual schedule from May to March to coincide with Armory week and the opening of this year’s Whitney Biennial.
