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.

WALERIAN BOROWCZYK : THE LISTENING EYE
May 20 - Jun 29, 2014
Primarily known for his erotic feature films (Immoral Tales, The Beast), Borowczyk trained in painting and sculpture, a background that greatly influenced his approach to filmmaking. Having established himself as a poster designer in Poland during the 1950s, Borowczyk emigrated to France in 1959, where he worked first as an animator and later as a live-action filmmaker. Throughout his career, Borowczyk became associated with key figures in both the Polish and French avant garde, including the poster artist Jan Lenica, cine-essayist Chris Marker, and electro-acoustic composer Bernard Parmegiani, not to mention surrealists such as André Breton, André Pieyre de Mandiargues and Max Ernst.
Featuring works on paper, wooden sound sculptures and rarely seen archival material (much of which was created as preliminary studies for his groundbreaking animations), this display is the first in the UK to be devoted to this unique and often overlooked artist and filmmaker.
ROOM&BOOK : ICA ART BOOK FAIR
Jun 6 - 8, 2014
Presented in association with Claire de Rouen Books, Room&Book is the first art book fair in London to focus exclusively on the role of the book dealer. There will be approximately twenty dealers at Room&Book, and each will present a collection of iconic publications from the last 30 years, alongside their vision for more in-print titles that will become the ‘new rare’.
Jun 25 - Sep 7, 2014
This summer, the ICA invites international artists, theorists and writers to present individual artworks, events, moving image and talks throughout the building and online. Whether responding to unusual circumstances created by major events, such as the wake of the 2011 Japan earthquake; or through simply finding unique connections through on and offline chance encounters with public spaces and people, these diverse projects highlight the role of the artist in society to question and respond.
