Nouvelle Vague Artspaces

NVA is a creative lab, an experimental and ever changing art space open to artistic expression and exchange. The intrinsic mission of NVA is to contribute culturally to the planet through a pioneering program of exhibitions.


The space responds to exhibition spaces that surpass the idea of the white cube. We represents upcoming artists from all over the world, with a particular attention to new voices from North Africa and the Middle East.


Launched in July 2019, NVM +1 is a new space that serves as a platform for special projects related to artist residencies, performances, video and art installs.


The space was opened in April 2018 with the inaugural group show ‘Supermercado’ #01. The concept was developed by Camilla and Firouz FarmanFarmaian and is now part of the newly created creative community ‘We R the Nomads’

    Let's Get Lost ( Let Them Send Out Alarms ) 2.0 I Janet Rady Fine Art & Nava Contemporary

    13 May 2020 – 21 Jun 2020

    ‘When art gets as rancid as a Cattelan banana, we literally need to revert back to the Core, a radical switch to a true Zeitgeist.’ FirouzFarmanFarmaian Janet Rady has been FarmanFarmaian’s agent since 2014 and has widely collaborated on exhibitions, art-talks and catalog introductions, curating shows such as the 2016 NYC Memory-Future / Future Memory exhibit. NAVA Contemporary's Nicole Archibeque & Valerie Altahawi have been working with Firouz in the US since 2015 engaging his work nation-wide on the RH Contemporary Art Program. Nouvelle Vague Artspaces as an artist-run gallery proposes a nomadic radical vision with eyes set on the future. Nouvelle Vague Artspaces as an artist-run gallery proposes a nomadic radical vision with eyes set on the future Firouz FarmanFarmaian History and memory inform the work of Persian-born artist Firouz FarmanFarmaian, whose lifetime of living in exile in Paris, France profoundly influenced both his creative practice and individual character. "It is circumstance that ultimately shapes lives", says the artist, whose work seeks to actively engage in a dialogue with the past. As such, his compositions possess a vivacious and spontaneous energy, as well as a deeply symbolic quality, which speaks to a multiplicity of currents in politics, art and philosophy. Rooted in Persian lore, and focused on themes of nature, architectonics and the interplay between realism and abstraction, FarmanFarmaian's diverse body of work is united by common motifs of movement and texture. The raw and visceral emotion of his pieces is tempered by their material properties, which are strongly rooted in a resolute emphasis on craftsmanship. Each work is the result of careful contemplation of the techniques and tools that will achieve a singular aesthetic and emotional intention. These in turn are deftly combined to create a unique visual rhythm across a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, film and music. ​Lives and works in between Marbella and Marrakech. His works figure in the collections of Queen Farah Diba, Mo Afkhami, Christine Amanpour and Antonio Banderas to name a few.

    Let's Get Lost ( Let Them Send Out Alarms ) / Janet Rady Fine Art

    30 Mar 2020 – 13 May 2020

    Opening on March 30th and running through May 13th 2020 London based art dealer and curator Janet Rady will present Firouz FarmanFarmaian’s very latest body of work via a multiplatform dematerialized digital exhibition. The exhibition will launch on Artsy on Monday 30th followed by a weeklong takeover of JRFA’s instagram account, starting Wednesday April 1st. FarmanFarmaian’s Tales of Confinement posts will include art talks, poetry readings, music performances and workshop visits. Let's Get Lost ( Let them Send out Alarms ) was produced under the ongoing international lockdown and reflects on the idea of confinement, here brought into the heart of the artist's own practice. Statement : ‘ I moved back into the Marbella workshop after six months in Morocco, where I had been on the road sourcing and producing the ‘Banners of the Unbanished’ monumental installation for the 1-54 African Art fair. A few days in, the world went into a lockdown. I decided to enforce the lockdown rule to the letter and only use media I had inside, at hand. Cutting off from outside supplies, I reflected on Rem Koolhaas’s idea of ‘Junkspace’ I had previously juggled with for my first London solo show at Mews 42 Gallery, down in 2013. I here worked around a monochromatic palette reusing recuperated furniture fabric, transforming my post-tribal lost forms into new forms - in order to express sentiment of confinement. The feeling of the outside from the inside. The freedom of inner vitality so present in all Persian poetry. ‘ The title of the exhibition "Let's Get Lost ( Let Them Send Out Alarms )” is taken from a Chet Baker track FarmanFarmaian had on while working and a throwback to the 1988 "Let's Get Lost" black and white film by fashion photographer Bruce Weber, documenting Chet Baker’s last days. It expresses the idea of the internal voyage, where true creative freedom lies.
