Where: Institute of Contemporary Arts, London
Fig-2 presents 50 projects over 50 weeks in the ICA Studio, in association with Outset. Please join us for fig-2 openings every Monday from 6-8pm throughout 2015. As the ICA is closed on Mondays, to reach the Studio please use the ramp entrance to the Studio from Carlton House Terrace, at the top of the Duke of York Steps.
Fatoş Üstek, Art Fund Curator at fig-2, explains that: 'fig-2's format utilises change as a constant. fig-2's structure of fifty successive exhibitions realised on a weekly basis operates as a catalyst to manifest the aesthetic and critical currency of our times. fig-2 will cultivate uncertainty and conscious incompleteness through each and every project that is driven by the radical imagination of artists, writers, dancers, architects, and designers'.
fig-2 is a revival of the project fig-1, which was conceived and developed by Mark Francis and Jay Jopling in 2000. Experimental in its nature, each project was programmed only a few weeks in advance to maintain as much spontaneity as possible. fig-1 presented projects by Jeremy Deller, Richard Hamilton, Runa Islam, Oliver Payne and Nick Relph, Will Self, Patti Smith, Caruso St John and Philip Treacy, among others.
