Tim and Ant to the Rescue

Filling a gap, and always willing to lend a hand when major arts organisations fail to do their jobs properly, we are delighted to announce the re-opening of the ICA Live Art Department in the form of True Riches, an independent curatorial project with contributions and participation of an international group of artists, curators and thinkers working in and around Live Art.

The project True Riches – a season which runs from now until the end of the year at the ICA – arises from our invitations to around 25 individuals to make proposals for works, seasons and themed and un-themed programmes. It gathers materials which stem from a variety of approaches, tendencies, and impulses in the live art sector – from the satirical critical to the archival, from the comical subversive to the theoretical investigative. We even have a buffet of zero gravity food.

The ICA Live Art Department, even though it does not exist, is alive and well and glad of your support. We would like to extend our thanks to the many artists and curators who have joined us to make the varied proposals, statements and programmes that comprise True Riches. We hope that you’ll join us for these and other events.
