For one day only LCCA, in collaboration with I.D.E.A.London will curate a day of exhibitions, events and performances at the ICA.


“The Art World can seem like a huge bureaucracy what with the Arts Council and all its forms; the etiquette of trying to approach a gallery with your art; the amount of functionaries that purport to offer opportunities yet seem to act as gate keepers to visibility. In post bureaucracy a new generation of artists has been asked to reflect on all the roles of the gallery and devise new ways in which the public can be engaged in Art more directly.”
