The ICA and ADRI
ADRI enjoys a collaborative partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London. Through this agreement, researchers from the School of Art and Design offer specialist insights which inform the Institute’s public programme. Past events have included the Parallel of Art and Life conference in 2013 and the exhibition, Parallel of Life and Art: the Independent Group and the ICA, co-curated by Professor Anne Massey. She has written a book, to be published by the ICA in February 2014, on the first twenty year history of this home for the avant garde. ADRI is organising a one day conference for 29th March 2014 on the Art School Experience, curated by Professor Rebecca Fortnum. Research on the more recent history of the ICA is being undertaken by CDA PhD student, Lucy Bayley.
