The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) is the UK’s original, not-for-profit, multi-disciplinary arts centre.
Established in 1947 by a collective of artists, poets and writers to explore contemporary culture across the broadest platforms, the ICA has been at the forefront of artistic experiment since its formation and has presented some of the most radical exhibitions, artists, films, music and thought to have shaped our world. It continues today as a dedicated space for new, experimental and independent arts practice and ideas.
Housing two galleries, two cinemas, a theatre, reading room, bookshop and café/bar, the ICA presents an international and contextualised programme of work across a variety of art forms.
Free entry to galleries and bar events before 11pm.
