2014 Common Space is co-hosting Omar Souleyman with Jeffrey Deitch and NADA.
NADAWAVE is a series of musical performances created by Common Space and organized in collaboration with NADA (The New Art Dealers Alliance) that take place during the Miami art fair held in December each year. 2014 will be our fourth year. NADAWAVE is a reference to the “No Wave” movement of underground music, super 8 film, performance art, video art, and contemporary art that had its beginnings during the late 1970s through the mid-1980s in downtown New York City.
NADAWAVE is a cross section of reactionary artists who innovate musical genres through experimentation and improvisation. The series focus is on those who create unexpected audible forms at the overlap and unlikely combination of sounds that take root in jazz, hip-hop, electronic, bass, funk, noise and experimental music – presented in the context and vibrance of a high energy dance party.
