The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) — London

The Mall, SW1Y 5AH London

The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) was originally conceived as a 'laboratory' or 'playground' for the arts in 1947 by poet and anarchist Herbert Read, alongside artists and patrons including Richard Hamilton, Eduardo Paolozzi, Roland Penrose and Peter Watson. Today, through a vibrant programme of exhibitions, films, events, talks and debates, the ICA challenges perceived notions and stimulates debate, experimentation, creativity and exchange with visitors.
