RIRKRIT TIRAVANIJA
Jun 6, 2019 - Jun 6, 2020 FINAL WEEK
The ICA unveils a newly commissioned permanently sited work by Rirkrit Tiravanija. The work will occupy the alcove in the common area of the ICA, between the Lower Gallery and the Theatre, transforming it into a new social space comprising a sake bar, seating and tables crafted in Tiravanija’s studio in Chiang Mai, set within a painted sunrise and sunset. This new work marks Tiravanija’s return to the ICA, following his participation in the landmark exhibition Real Time in 1993.
 
untitled 2019 (the form of the flower is unknown to the seed) (2019) will be the first permanently sited work by Tiravanija in London. It will be available to visit on an ongoing basis from 7 June.
 
A special programme celebrating the opening of untitled 2019 (the form of the flower is unknown to the seed) will take place on 6 June, open to ICA Friends and Red Members.

Oct 25, 2019 7:30pm talk/event
A night of conversation and performance with poet and former Young People’s Laureate for London Caleb Femi and singer and Noisettes vocalist and bassist Shingai, curated by julianknxx.
 
In conversation with julianknxx, the artists explore questions of self-making – from the challenges of communicating one’s narrative as an artist to navigating African pasts and British futures. These conversations are interspersed with poetry readings and musical performances.
 
The evening draws from poet and creative director julianknxx’s buzzing network of musicians, fashion designers and other creatives to place Black British artists in conversation with each other. Against a looming post-Brexit Britain, these conversations centre the contributions of African immigrants to London life. The event’s intimate atmosphere, framed by the lived experience of the artists, stimulates aesthetic but also personal and even spiritual conversations. Creating a moment for reflection on significant creative practices, julianknxx and friends is a live archiving of Black British history.
