The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) occupies a prestigious building in Carlton House Terrace, close to Admiralty Arch and The Mall. It was founded by the art critic and historian Herbert Reed.
It showcases a broad range of works, from contemporary films and art-house movies, to exhibitions of avant-garde art. Due to the ICA’s cutting-edge nature, a lot of the work will either be described as genius, or derided as junk – depending on your point of view.
There are also a number of talks and dance productions.
