IN NUMBERS : SERIAL PUBLICATIONS BY ARTISTS SINCE 1955
Jan 25 - Mar 25, 2012
In Numbers: Serial Publications by Artists Since 1955 is a survey exhibition of the often-overlooked genre of serial publications produced by artists around the world from 1955 to the present day. From the rise of the small press in the 1960s, followed by the correspondence art movement, where artists exchanged art by post, to the DIY zine culture in the 1980s and early 1990s, professional artists have always seized on the format of magazines and postcards as a site for a new kind of art production.
JAMES RICHARDS : REQUESTS AND ANTISONGS
Sep 21 - Nov 13, 2016
James Richards presents new and recent works which continue his ongoing exploration of the emotive power of appropriated digital video and sound.
Taking his video Radio At Night (2015) as a starting point, Richards presents three new works which unfold and expand their compositional logic into three distinct, but linked pieces. These sit across the ICA’s Lower and Upper Galleries, separated physically, but joined conceptually across the spaces. Speaking about the exhibition, Richards explained: "My aim is to work on an exhibition that will have three parts, iterations or edits. I want to play with déjà vu, as well as a certain form of chiming, whereby works echo and reflect each other."
