NAMARA was born out of a need for different models of art production and presentation.
A priority for medium-agnostic, concept-driven projects underscores an enduring link to the framework imposed by contemporary art history. Equally significant is an understanding of how the languages of commerce and community converge with the vocabularies of fine art and its philosophy. It is at the points of intersection that NAMARA projects are cultivated.
NAMARA delivers cultural projects that resonate.
