All Visual Arts (AVA) is a new hybrid arts enterprise founded by art expert Joe La Placa and CEO of BlueCrest Capital Management Mike Platt in October 2008, whose combined areas of expertise make a strong basis upon which to build a
significant collection of contemporary art. La Placa and Platt work closely with their stable of
artists, commissioning work that is often ambitious in both scale and in concept.
Located in a 5,000 square foot warehouse in the heart of King’s Cross, with high ceilings
and expansive walls, the new space acts as an all encompassing showroom, office and storage
space for the AVA team, the collection and the artists it represents: Reece Jones, Alastair
Mackie, Kate MccGwire, Wolfe von Lenkiewicz and Jonathan Wateridge.
