The New Art Dealers Alliance -- aka NADA -- returns to the Deauville Beach Resort (6701 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach) for the eleventh edition of their Miami art fair. Twenty-five galleries from fourteen countries will be on hand with works from emerging global artists. Look for New York galleries including Marlborough Chelsea, SculptureCenter, Alden Projects, American Contemporary, Nicelle Beauchene, Brennan and Griffin and Callicoon Fine Arts. PAPER fave Creative Growth will also be showing. NADA's "special invite" preview is on December 5th, from 10am to 2pm and the fair is open to the public -- free of charge -- after 2pm on the 5th and through Sunday, December 8.


One of the original "concept" retail stores, colette, is coming to Art Basel for a week-long pop-up collab with Miami's Alchemist shop at 1111 Lincoln Road. Since 1997, the Parisian store has attracted shoppers from around the world with their mix of high-fashion, streetwear, CDs, magazines, and more. The "Colette Art Drive-Thru at Alchemist" will be open from December 2nd to the 8th.


A big international traveling exhibition from Spain called "TAPAS: Design For Food" will be on view all week in the Moore Building (4040 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami) in Miami's Design District. There will be over 200 exhibits and installations by Spanish chefs, designers, architects, wineries and restaurants in three themed areas: the kitchen, the table and the meal. If you happen to be down in Miami on November 9th, stop by the Moore Building for "Eat You -- Eat Me," a special installation of interactive "edible performance art" by Spanish artist Miralda.


For its ninth edition, the PULSE Miami fair is back at the Ice Palace Studios (1400 North Miami Avenue, Miami) but this year they're offering bigger booths in a new layout with better access and visibility. Their invitation-only preview is on December 5th from 9am to 1pm and then it's open to the public from 1pm until 7pm that evening and daily through December 8th. They'll be announcing the winner of their annual PULSE Prize awarded to "an emerging artist of distinction" on Friday, December 6th.


We hear that acclaimed fashion designer Roberto Cavalli is planning to open a new Italian restaurant called Cavalli by the time Art Basel starts. Look for it in South Beach at the south end of Ocean Drive.


The official Art Basel Miami Beach film program will include the American premiere of "Nan Goldin: I Remember Your Face," directed by Sabine Lidi at the Colony Theatre (1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach) on Friday, December 6th, at 8:30pm. Admission is free, but seating is limited. This year's film and video program was curated by David Gryn and This Brunner and it includes films by Dara Birnbaum, Martin Creed, Rineke Dijkstra, Joan Jonas and Kehinde Wiley.
