The Japanese Art Dealers Association of New York (JADA) is a not-for-profit group whose members include leading New York galleries and private dealers. JADA promotes high standards of scholarship and connoisseurship in the many fields of Japanese art, as well as ethical practices in dealer-client transactions. At its founding, in 2002, JADA had four members.
JADA’s members specialize in various fields, including screens, paintings, prints, sculpture, ceramics, lacquer, and textiles. Each of our members has vast experience as a dealer, auction house specialist, curator, collector, or some combination of the above.
Membership in JADA is selective. Members must handle primarily pre-Meji Period (1868) works, have expertise in at least one field of Japanese art, and have a focus on relationships with museums, institutions, and serious collectors. They must also have deep understanding of Japanese art, a reputation for integrity and honesty, and a commitment to fostering and engendering an appreciation of Japanese art. Applications for membership are reviewed at JADA’s annual meetings.
