All Visual Arts
2, Omega Place
Founded in 2007, All Visual Arts is an arts organisation and contemporary arts collection. It is a new hybrid arts enterprise founded by art expert Joe La Placa and CEO of BlueCrest Capital Management Mike Platt. AVA is dedicated to the long term development of their artists: Paul Fryer, Alastair Mackie, Kate MccGwire, Reece Jones, Jonathan Wateridge and Wolfe von Lenkiewicz.
Based in Kings Cross, All Visual Arts promotes our artists nationally and internationally and curates ambitious exhibitions. We also collaborate with other curators, collectors and gallerists in the presentation and development of solo and group shows.
In October 2009 AVA presented “The Age of the Marvellous”. It was our first group show and included over 60 pieces by our six artists and other collaborators. Most of our artists have had solo exhibitions since AVA started two years ago.
In 2008 All Visual Arts presented Paul Fryers solo exhibition called “Let There Be More Light” in London, and since he shown his Pieta at “Qui a Peur des Artistes?” which was a selection of works from the François Pinault Foundation. He also participated in “32 Pieces: The Art of Chess” in Iceland with Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and another of AVA’s artists; Alastair Mackie.
Alastair Mackie has participated in the Venice Biennale with the Gervasuti Foundation in 2009, and in the same year has had a solo exhibitions with the David Robert’s Foundation; “Not Waving but Drowning” and participated in a collaboration with the Contemporary Art Society at the Economists Plaza called “Mimetes Anon”.
