Native Art Department International (NADI) is a collaborative long-term project created and administered by Maria Hupfield and Jason Lujan which began in Brooklyn in 2016 and is now based in Toronto. NADI seeks to circumvent easy categorization by comprising a diverse range of undertakings such as unannounced actions, curatorial projects, video screenings, paintings, collective art making, and mixed-use installations. All activities contain an undercurrent of cooperation and non-competition while at the same time functioning as emancipation from essentialism and identity-based artwork. NADI has been featured in exhibitions at Varley Art Museum (Markham), Museum of Contemporary Art (Toronto), and Mercer Union (Toronto). Their works are present in private and museum collections including Markham Public Art and Art Gallery of Guelph, as well as several corporate collections.
