NADA is now accepting applications for the fifth edition of NADA House. The 2023 edition will take place September 1–October 1, 2023 at a new location in Nolan Park.

NADA is seeking applications from art galleries, artist-run spaces, and nonprofits to propose an artist that could benefit from an opportunity to exhibit their work in a collaborative, public exhibition.

We invite you to submit a proposal for this collaborative format that will engage the unique character of the spaces, and understand the public nature of this exhibition and its audiences. The island’s changing identity over time—from its origins as Lenape land occupied by Native Americans of the Manhattan region to its role in the Revolutionary War, and later from its use by the US Army and Coast Guard, to its current state as a site for artistic, scientific, and urban experimentation—presents an unusual and exciting context for a group of artists to display their work.

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 opportunity to bring together artists and artworks that address its changing identity. During NADA House, Governors Island will also be host to numerous exhibitions, events, and residencies by arts organizations and nonprofits.

Additionally, documentation of NADA House will be featured in a Digital Catalogue on to increase access to the exhibition for those who might not be able to visit in person. Photography is included as part of the participation contribution.
