The Institute of Contemporary Arts was founded in 1947 as a ‘playground of ideas’ in which artists were encouraged to experiment and explore. The ICA exists today to challenge the foundations of contemporary art creating a space for new, experimental and independent arts practice and ideas. Like a lens, the ICA focuses on developments in contemporary art at any given moment. The programme is fast moving, fluid and reflects what is happening in the world.
