Institute of Contemporary Arts

The Mall. (Open Map)


Housed in a Regency building designed by John Nash along the Mall in London, the ICA has a long history of being at the forefront of the British arts world. Built in the early 19th century, it has featured the first UK shows of famous artists such as Picasso and Henry Moore, and continues to offer cutting-edge and often controversial programming. From experimental and progressive films, to music nights, photography, art, lectures, multimedia works, and book readings, the ICA provides an excellent array of cultural events.
