Awards / NADA Artadia Award
The NADA Artadia Award is a collaborative, unrestricted Award presented semiannually at NADA New York and NADA Miami Beach. The Award recipient is chosen by a jury of two renowned curators on the opening day of the fair and publicly announced later that day.
The selected artists receive all of the lifetime benefits of the Artadia Awards program, including access to Artadia’s national network and the option to participate in Artadia’s ongoing programs, exhibitions, and professional services. Previous NADA Artadia Awardees include Margaret Lee (2012 Miami), Meg Cranston (2013 New York), Ryan Foerster (2013 Miami), What Pipeline (2014 New York), Sergei Tcherepnin (2014 Miami), Jackie Saccoccio (2015 New York), Summer Wheat (2016 New York), Philip Smith (2016 Miami), Josh Mannis (2017 New York) Carolin Eidner (2017 Miami), and Farah Al Qasimi (2018 New York).
Artadia and the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) are pleased to announce Josh Mannis as the recipient of the 2017 New York NADA Artadia Award, a $5,000 unrestricted, merit-based Award granted to one artist exhibiting at the fair. Mannis’ work is exhibited at Galerie Éric Hussenot, booth 4.05 at NADA New York.
A jury comprising two renowned curators, Gianni Jetzer, Curator-at-Large, The Hirshhorn, and Rebecca Shaykin, Leon Levy Assistant Curator, The Jewish Museum, selected Mannis. This is the ninth time NADA and Artadia have partnered to present the Award. Jurors Jetzer and Shaykin said of Mannis: “The work of Josh Mannis stands out in today’s realm of figurative painting. His effortless combination of art history tracing an arc from Neue Sachlichkeit to Sinister Pop is countered by postcard views of American politics. The protagonists of his paintings live in a feverish dream that is fueled by conspiracy and ultimately violence.”
Mannis was born in Boston in 1976, and received his BFA from the University of Michigan School of Art and Design in 1999, and his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2005. He works across genres and is known for his video pieces, ink-on-paper drawings, and oil on canvas paintings. He was most recently featured in the solo exhibition, KNOWLEDGE OF THE FUTURE ESTATE, at M+B Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. His work has been reviewed in BLOUIN ARTINFO, LA WEEKLY, Artforum, and the Los Angeles Times, among others. Mannis currently lives in Los Angeles, CA.
Artadia and the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) are pleased to announce Philip Smith as the recipient of the 2016 Miami Beach NADA Artadia Award, a $5,000 unrestricted, merit–based Award granted to one artist exhibiting at the fair. Smith’s work is exhibited at Locust Projects, booth 5.06 at NADA Miami Beach. A jury comprising two renowned curators, Jen Mergel, Robert L. Beal, Enid L. Beal and Bruce A. Beal Senior Curator of Contemporary Art and Interim Chair, Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and Jacob Proctor, Curator, the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, University of Chicago, selected Smith. This is the eighth time NADA and Artadia have partnered to present the Award.
Jurors Mergel and Proctor stated: “Smith is perhaps the least known of the five artists included in Douglas Crimp’s 1977 Artists Space exhibition Pictures. His 2016 photographic edition entitled Night grows out of a large personal archive. A digital scan of his damaged, decades old 35mm slide of an African sculpture he collected both continues and updates the artist’s longstanding investigation into the generative capacity of photographic imagery. In Smith’s hands, the subject, the medium, and even the practice itself are revealed in the production of a new artifact.”
Smith is part of the Pictures Generation. His work has been included in the Whitney Biennial and Beijing Biennial, and is in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Dallas Museum of Art, Pérez Art Museum Miami, and Detroit Institute of Art, among others. Smith has served as a writer for Interview Magazine and as a managing editor at GQ. The artist lives and works in Miami, FL.

Mullen, Jr. Curator and Director of High Line Art, determined the Awardee. “Sergei Tcherepnin’s solo presentation stood out for its elegant simplicity and refined modesty of means.” Gioni and Alemani elaborated that, “[by] combining painting, sculpture, sound and textiles, Tcherepnin has created a body of work that is both formally seductive and playfully engaging.”

Artadia and the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) are delighted to announce What Pipeline as the recipient of the 2014 Artadia / NADA Award, a $4,000 unrestricted merit-based award selected at the 2014 edition of NADA New York. A jury comprised of two internationally renowned curators, Ingrid Schaffner, Chief Curator, Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania, and Carin Kuoni, Director, Vera List Center for Art and Politics, The New School for Public Engagement, determined the award winner. The award is generously funded by Artadia and NADA.
“NADA offers a scale so conducive to seeing, in some depth, a lot of great work by individual artists; however, we decided to award the Artadia Prize to What Pipeline. It represents to us a relevant and future-oriented model of how artists collaborate locally and beyond by establishing networks that operate both outside of, and through, the art world’s centers,” note Carin Kuoni and Ingrid Schaffner. “Activated by different contexts—studio, exhibition, gallery, art fair—these ad hoc aggregates of artists perform different functions within our very complex art system. And while Detroit may have its own gravitational pull right now, What Pipeline seems purposefully situated to exert pressure from within—and upon—this most utopian of dystopias on contemporary culture at large.
What Pipeline Founders, artists Alivia Zivich and Daniel Sperry, will receive all lifetime privileges of the Artadia Award program, including: ongoing support and connections through the Artadia network of curators, critics and arts-related professionals; an opportunity to apply to the Artadia residency program; studio visits with internationally renowned curators; national exhibitions, publications; and more.
