Join us on Tuesday 18 June from 6pm until 9pm for the opening of Keep Your Timber Limber (Works on Paper). Curated by Sarah McCrory, the exhibition explores how artists since the 1940s to the present day have used drawing to address ideas critical and current to their time, ranging from the politics of gender and sexuality, to feminist issues, war and censorship.
Jane Scarth from the ICA Student Forum spoke to Anne Massey, art historian and co-curator of the current Fox Reading Room display The Independent Group: Parallel of Art and Life, about the fraught and dramatic history of the ICA archive, what makes the Independent Group radical, and the challenges of re-contextualisation.
Here’s a small selection from the ICA Bookshop to accompany our new exhibition Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years. There are many more relevant titles in the shop so visit us and browse our full range of books, DVDs, magazines and zines. We’re open from Tuesday – Sunday, 11am – 9pm. Every purchase supports the ICA.
Join us on Tuesday 26 March from 6pm until 9pm for the preview of our next exhibition, Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years.
2000 Wasted Years is the first UK retrospective by the New York based Bernadette Corporation. Across their twenty-year history and mutable membership there runs a thread of anonymity and opacity, the rejection of normative social forms and appellations such as being an artist, or a political activist. The exhibition recasts the works authored by the influential and illusive group since their inception in the early ’90s.
Also opening is The Independent Group: Parallel of Art & Life, an exhibition presenting original artworks by the Independent Group to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the ground-breaking exhibition Parallel of Life & Art.
We hope to see you there.
To celebrate the opening of Juergen Teller: Woo!, we’ve put together a list of recommended titles to add to your reading list. This selection along with a host of other books, DVDs and limited edition prints can be found in our online shop or in person at the ICA Bookshop on the Mall.
