FAIR

Wednesday, May 20 – Jun 21, 2020

12 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60603

The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is pleased to announce FAIR, built in partnership with Artlogic. FAIR is a new art fair initiative designed to be entirely online, function cooperatively, and act as a benefit for NADA’s community of galleries, nonprofits and artists. Taking place May 20–June 21, 2020, FAIR will directly support 119 NADA Gallery Members and 81 other galleries that have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, totaling nearly 200 galleries around the world.

FAIR offers an alternative profit-sharing model, structured to facilitate mutual support within the art community and provide revenue to each of its participants during a time in which galleries have temporarily closed their physical locations. A percentage from each sale made from FAIR will directly benefit all participating galleries and artists. In addition, a percentage of each sale will go towards supporting NADA for their efforts in producing FAIR, their continued work as an organization for art galleries, through this time of crisis and beyond.

Cooperative Sales Model:

  • 50% of each sale goes directly to gallery (which is split evenly between artist/gallery)
  • 20% of each sale goes into cooperative gallery sales pool; to be shared evenly among all participating galleries
  • 20% of each sale goes into cooperative artist sales pool; to be shared evenly among all participating artists
  • 10% of each sale goes to support the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA)

 

Each participating gallery will present a series of artworks over four-weeks with the opportunity to share new artworks each week. The initiative will also feature a series of online performances, studio visits and talks to complement the artworks presented by participating galleries and artists. FAIR, produced in collaboration with Artlogic, utilizes their Online Viewing Rooms service and is generously hosted by them.
