Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA)

London, United Kingdom
Official website: Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA)

From the ICA website: “The ICA is home to the best new art and culture from Britain and around the world. A meeting point for exploration between artists and audiences, the ICA examines the questions that shape our culture, society and individual lives. We believe in creative adventure. In art as inspiration. Ultimately the ICA is not so much a place as a principle. A belief in the new. An enduring faith in the creativity of tomorrow.” Ekow Eshun

“The Institute of Contemporary Arts was established in 1947 by a collective of artists, poets and writers to showcase and champion contemporary culture across a wide range of art forms. Since its establishment, it has been at the centre of many of the most significant artistic and cultural developments in the past 60 years. It has also introduced numerous artists, performers, writers and other cultural figures to a wider audience, both nationally and internationally. Today, the ICA consists of two galleries, two cinemas, a theatre, a bookshop, a bar and café and private function rooms. Its programme covers visual arts, music, cinema, talks and educational events. It provides a forum for the creative industries, providing networking opportunities and a range of organised events. The ICA Bookshop offers a wide range of books, magazines, DVDs and other merchandise both in-store and on line. The ICA’s facilities, including two magnificent function rooms, are also available for private hire and events.”

The ICA is located on The Mall, London SW1Y 5AH. Box Office: 020 7930 3647 / Switchboard: 020 7930 0493
