International Gallery Prize, Miami 2018
Arcadia Missa, London was one of two galleries to receive the NADA International Gallery Prize at NADA Miami 2018. As a recipient, the gallery is invited to participate in the fair for the first time in a sponsored booth.
At NADA Miami, Arcadia Missa will present works by two London-based artists: otherworldly paintings by Lewis Hammond and a sculptural work, “Precious Expressions” (2018), by Reba Maybury, a vitrine filled with objects from a period of performance and labour. Arcadia Missa began as a project space in 2011 and became a gallery representing artists in late 2014. The gallery has been publishing books since 2011.
“We are very happy to have been awarded the prize and are excited to showcase two emerging British artists on an international stage; Reba Maybury and Lewis Hammond,” Arcadia Missa Founder and Director, Rozsa Farkas. “As a small, young gallery, the fair circuit and associated costs are extremely risky, and this prize has given us the opportunity to do our first US fair.”
