NADA House Announces 2021 Participants

April 2, 2021

Emerson Dorsch is thrilled to announce its participation in the 2021 New Art Dealer’s Alliance (NADA) NADA House on Governors Island. For the third edition of NADA House New York, Emerson Dorsch will present a site-specific installation by Ernesto Gutiérrez Moya.

The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is pleased to announce the third edition of NADA House, returning to Governors Island with 66 galleries, non-profits, artist-run spaces, and curators, presenting over 100 artists. The collaborative, public exhibition will take place May 8 – August 1, 2021 in an expanded format, with gallery presentations in over 50 rooms in three neighboring turn-of-the-century colonial revival buildings.

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with Governors Island, a site that offers a unique and historic platform for artists to share their work,” said NADA Executive Director Heather Hubbs. “We look forward to welcoming back visitors and New Yorkers alike to experience and celebrate the best of contemporary art in-person this spring and summer.”

NADA House participants will engage with the unique character of the spaces, exhibiting work in a diverse range of mediums including large-scale installations, immersive environments, wall murals, and outdoor sculpture. Numerous artists at NADA House this year will present works that directly respond to the complex history of Governors Island’s colonial, military, and political past, including Camille Hoffman (False Flag); Dagnini and Alexander Shchurenkov (Fragment); Monsieur Zohore and Sandy Williams IV (New Release); and Alix Vernet (Real Pain); among others. In the areas surrounding the buildings, this year’s exhibition will include NADA House’s largest presentation of outdoor artworks to date, with an audio presentation of sounds works by six Puerto Rican contemporary artists organized by Embajada; and sculptures by Alejandro Almanza Pereda (anonymous gallery), Tamika Rivera (Fort Makers), Adam Parker Smith (The Hole); John Drue Scott Worrell (Gern en Regalia); Rachel Nelson and Erik Zajaceskowski (secret project robot); and others.

The exhibition will open concurrently with the beginning of Governors Island’s 2021 Public Season and will run through the summer, with monthly in-person and virtual programmatic activations—a full schedule will be announced in the coming weeks. During the course of NADA House, Governors Island will also be host to numerous exhibitions, events, and residencies by arts organizations and nonprofits such as Shandaken Projects, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), and more.

Additionally, a newly-designed Digital Catalogue will be featured on to increase access to the exhibition for those who might not be able to visit in person.

NADA and Governors Island are continuing to monitor and follow all state and local public health guidelines, and are working closely to ensure the safety and comfort for participants and visitors. NADA House will be open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, 11am–5pm beginning May 8th. For ferry schedules and details about getting to the island click here.

About Governors Island
Governors Island is a 172-acre island in the heart of New York Harbor nestled between Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn waterfront. Eight minutes from the energy and excitement of the City, the Island is a popular seasonal destination. A resilient new park is complemented by dozens of unique historic buildings, environmental educational facilities, a rich arts and culture program and a 22-acre National Monument managed by the National Park Service. Unlike anywhere else in New York, Governors Island offers peaceful settings with sweeping views of the Harbor, Lower Manhattan skyline, and the Statue of Liberty. Looking ahead, the Island will be activated year-round as a sustainable campus for learning and entrepreneurship, with plans for expanded commercial and non-profit uses in its future.
