ICA LIVE
To coincide with Frieze London, the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) will present ICA Live—a series of live events encompassing dance, film, discussion, performance, and music. The list of highlights of this weeklong programing is exhaustive. In terms of performances, U.K. multidisciplinary artist Andrew Kerton will perform his “_fieldnotes,” while Swedish choreographer Mårten Spångberg will present a specially choreographed “dance of horror” entitled “Natten” (meaning “the night”) that will consist of a seven-hour ensemble with a group of female dancers. A series of artist talks are also scheduled, notably with artist James Richards currently showing “Request and Antisongs” at the ICA, and Russian artist Sanya Kantarovsky discussing his painting practice for the occasion of his London solo show at Stuart Shave/Modern Art.

ICA Associates PAN will be presenting a bespoke two-day audio visual program of lectures, live performances, and screenings. Panels revolving around forceful topics such as the future of contemporary art (presented by artist Christopher Kulendran Thomas) and the cultural landscape of the Middle East (presented with the Sharjah Art Foundation) are to be featured.
