To close the ICA’s 60th anniversary celebrations they are holding an extraordinary exhibition of works by some of the artists who have played a part in their history. This will be a rare gathering of key figures who have helped shape contemporary art in Britain and beyond. More than 30 artists and artist estates have contributed to the exhibition. There are many signature pieces here, including a graphic work by Barbara Kruger, an LED piece by Jenny Holzer, a photograph by Thomas Struth and a spin painting by Damien Hirst.
The proceeds will help establish a commissioning fund for emerging artists, and provide vital resources for an ambitious new education programme.
