Arcila-Duque's interest in art and design began in New York City in the late 90s, when he curated the "Form and Function" exhibition sponsored by Britain’s Craft Council.

After relocating to Miami in 2000, Arcila-Duque pioneered in Miami’s Design District with his A-D Gallery. He presented works by leading artists such as Horst P. Horst, Peter Beard, Helmut Newton, Nobuyoshi Araki, Albert Watson, and Sara Moon, in dozens of exhibitions, including the critically acclaimed "Monumental Nudes” in 2002.
