Each year the ICA invites an artist to host an evening of artistic intervention to raise funds to support the ICA’s programme of exhibitions, cinema, talks and events.
At the centre point of the evening an artist will create a series of new works in front of audience of invited guests. In addition, the ICA offers unique artist-led experiences, which in previous years have featured private evening’s hosted by Gilbert & George, Alexandra Shulman, Thomas Heatherwick and Anselm Kiefer.
