Point of Interest

Institute Of Contemporary Arts

England / Europe

Founded in 1946 by a group of artists and connoisseurs including Geoffrey Grigson, Roland Penrose and Herbert Read, the ICA is a membership institute that expresses radical thoughts and ideas through art. Seen as an antithesis to the pull of establishing a Modern Art Museum at the time, the ICA instead chooses to remain at the forefront of contemporary art and culture by engaging new generations of artists. The ICA promotes all forms of artistic mediums by hosting exhibitions (including an exhibition by Pablo Picasso and the popular Woo! (2013) by Juergen Teller), live art events and shows by The Clash, Beastie Boys and Steve McQueen, visionary cinema with a program which has included screenings from Kenneth Anger, off-site projects such as the Intruders at the Palace musical benefit in 1988 which featured David Bowie and talks by emerging contemporary artists.
