Jun 6, 2019 - Jun 6, 2020 FINAL WEEK
The ICA unveils a newly commissioned permanently sited work by Rirkrit Tiravanija. The work will occupy the alcove in the common area of the ICA, between the Lower Gallery and the Theatre, transforming it into a new social space comprising a sake bar, seating and tables crafted in Tiravanija’s studio in Chiang Mai, set within a painted sunrise and sunset. This new work marks Tiravanija’s return to the ICA, following his participation in the landmark exhibition Real Time in 1993.
untitled 2019 (the form of the flower is unknown to the seed) (2019) will be the first permanently sited work by Tiravanija in London. It will be available to visit on an ongoing basis from 7 June.
A special programme celebrating the opening of untitled 2019 (the form of the flower is unknown to the seed) will take place on 6 June, open to ICA Friends and Red Members.

Nov 14, 2019 7:00pm - 12:00am talk/event
Interrogating the iconography of queer culture, collaborators Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings draw upon sound, moving image and the live event in this immersive performance. Continuing their ongoing collaboration with singer-songwriter Jesse Hultberg and musicians Owen Pratt and Milo McKinnon, Quinlan and Hastings transform the ICA Theatre into a live environment that riffs on the tensions between queer subcultures and the commercialisation of the gay mainstream.
This event is programmed as part of Image Behaviour, the ICA’s annual convening dedicated to experiments in artists’ moving image, considering the intersectional, cross-disciplinary possibilities of the medium.
Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings (both born 1991 Newcastle, London) live and work in London. They have participated in group shows including the recent Cruising Pavilion: Architecture, Gay Sex and Cruising Culture, ArkDes, Stockholm; Kiss My Genders, Hayward Gallery, London; and Queer Spaces: London, 1980s – Today, Whitechapel Gallery, London (all 2019). Solo presentations include Something for The Boys, Two Queens, Leicester (2018) and Gaby, Queer Thoughts, NYC (2018). An exhibition at Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea is forthcoming in 2020. Recent performances took place for Art Night (2019), Move Festival, Pompidou Centre (2019), and Kiss My Gender Live, Southbank Centre (2019).
