All Visual Arts LLP: Paul Fryer

All Visual Arts LLP (AVA) is a radical new arts funding partnership founded in March 2008 by curator and art critic Joe La Placa and Mike Platt.  Platt is the founder and CEO of BlueCrest Capital Management, European Hedge Fund of the year in 2006 and 2008.  A former star JP Morgan trader, Platt is one of the new generation of City heavyweights.

AVA is a ‘production house’ for developing international contemporary artists, giving them the essential backing they need to realise key artworks. Operating without a gallery, AVA will stage exhibitions, either in site specific spaces or in collaboration with major international galleries and museums.

 Over the next five years, AVA will build a major collection mainly based on works it funds. It will also act as an exclusive ‘super agent’ to some of the artists it collects.

AVA's inaugural exhibition “Let there be more Light” will be held  during ‘Frieze Week’, October 14-21, 2008 at the former Holy Trinity Church in Marylebone, adjacent to the annual Frieze Contemporary Art Fair in London's Regent's Park. The show will feature spectacular new works by Paul Fryer.
