Live Art Department Returns To The ICA

As a response to the London ICA's closure of their Live Art and New Media department last year, two artists, Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells, respectively directors of Rotozaza and Forced Entertainment, have joined together to create True Riches a virtual interdisciplinary intervention of proposals to 'not' take place in and around the ICA until the end of 2009. The spoof is intended to ridicule the ICA's decision to close the venue's live art department. Events 'programmed' include late night lectures in the ICA bar, debates on the underground, film screenings, food stalls and more. For more information and to download a programme, click here.
