The Institute of Contemporary Arts Plasters Dover Street Market

The Institute of Contemporary Arts has invaded London’s Dover Street Market with the latest installment of its “Off-Site” installations. Designed by Julia – a trio consisting of Royal College of Art graduates Valerio Di Lucente, Erwan Lhuissier and Hugo Timm – the show offers a rare look into the Institute’s extensive archives, setting up shop in what served as the Institute’s home from 1950 to 1968 and, arguably, the very spot that birthed both pop art and brutalist architecture. Coinciding with the release of Institute of Contemporary Arts: 1946-1968, as well as retrospective exhibitions at both the ICA and Tate Modern, the exhibit sees DSM’s six floors showcasing photographs, posters and imagery from the ICA’s nearly two-decade tenure in the building – a seminal period in the ICA’s storied history and one that includes groundbreaking work from the likes of Richard Hamilton, Eduardo Paolozzi, Alison and Peter Smithson, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock. Look for the installation to remain on display through April 6 while an interview with Adrian Joffe regarding the project can be seen via the ICA’s blog.
