About the Gallery
Arcadia Missa Gallery started as a self-organized project by Rózsa Farkas between 2011-2014, in South London’s Peckham, and was founded in November 2014 in Soho. The contemporary gallery is divided into three parts: projects, gallery and publisher.
In 2011, Arcadia Missa was built out of the works Rózsa Farkas and Tom Clark were generating as students at Central Saint Martins, focusing on institutional critique and self-education. The gallery is known for its collaborative and conversational approach to working with artists. This theme often overflows into their programming of published works. Arcadia Missa publications are comprised of the journal How to Sleep Faster, artist and writer novellas, and occasional anthologies like Re-Materialising Feminism. The gallery represents a diverse group of artists such as Amalia Ulman, Harry Sanderson, Maha Cule, Jesse Darling, Ann Hirsch, Hannah Black, Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings, Phoebe Collings-James, Hamishi Farah, Penny Goring, Reba Maybury and Lewis Hammond.
