New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is pleased to announce Bonny Poon from Paris as the 2019 recipient of the fourth annual NADA Miami International Gallery Prize.

The initiative awards galleries based outside the United States a distinctive platform to participate in NADA Miami for the first time in a sponsored booth, furthering NADA’s global mission of cultivation, support, and advancement of new and relevant voices in contemporary art.

“We began the International Gallery Prize to spotlight galleries with a unique global perspective, and who otherwise may not have the opportunity to participate in NADA fairs,” said NADA Executive Director Heather Hubbs. “As a collective, founded by galleries for galleries, it’s always our goal to support galleries in every stage of their career. NADA continues to present a diverse, international program to the public, and we’re excited to welcome Bonny Poon to NADA Miami 2019.”

NADA Miami 2019 will take place from December 5-8, showcasing 136 exhibitors representing 56 cities from 25 different countries, 28 first time exhibitors, 71 NADA Member galleries, and 28 project spaces.

For their first time exhibiting at NADA Miami, Bonny Poon will present “Old Actors, New Portraits,” which features Marie Karlberg, Ilya Lipkin, Kunle F. Martins, and Julian Tromp.

"We are happy to be part of this incredible initiative from NADA. At a time when fairs can be financially difficult, the International Gallery Prize is a vital and urgent reminder of what it means to actually support young galleries," said Co-Founder and Director Bonny Poon.

Past NADA Miami International Gallery Prize recipients have hailed from Bogotá, London, Prague, Tokyo, and Warsaw.

The 2019 International Gallery Prize recipients were selected by the NADA Miami 2019 Selection Committee. The prize is supported by visitors of NADA Miami through ticket sales.
