Rózsa Farkas (QuarARTine special episode)
QuarARTine continues!! Russell & Robert chat with gallerist, writer and curator Rózsa Farkas. Founder and Director of Arcadia Missa, a gallery focusing on “contemporary art with intent” that “began as a self-organised space in austerity Britain”. Beginning in 2011 as a multi-platform Peckham project space, it evolved into a commercial gallery by 2014 and is now located in Soho, central London. The space has provided new aesthetic approaches and alternative organisational structures with a dynamic exhibition programme and extensive publication platform.
We discuss how to run a gallery during lockdown (including online publications and viewing rooms), the importance of peer-led programming/collaboration, self-publishing in the visual arts, performance art and how art can bring about social change. We discuss her artist roster including Penny Goring, Jesse Darling and Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings, how to name a gallery and what we hope the future of the art world will look like. Plus, Rózsa reads one of Penny Goring’s poems which leads Russell to discuss late playwright Sarah Kane’s work and Rózsa introduces us to the art of British surrealist Ithell Colquhoun for the first time, the performance art of Hungarian artist Katalin Ladik and more recent works by emerging artist Rene Matić.
