ICA Studio

fig-2 presents 50 projects over 50 weeks in the ICA Studio, in association with Outset.

Fatoş Üstek, Art Fund Curator at fig-2, explains that: ‘fig-2’s format utilises change as a constant. fig-2’s structure of fifty successive exhibitions realised on a weekly basis operates as a catalyst to manifest the aesthetic and critical currency of our times. fig-2 will cultivate uncertainty and conscious incompleteness through each and every project that is driven by the radical imagination of artists, writers, dancers, architects, and designers’.

fig-2 is a revival of the project fig-1, which was conceived and developed by Mark Francis and Jay Jopling in 2000. Experimental in its nature, each project was programmed only a few weeks in advance to maintain as much spontaneity as possible. fig-1 presented projects by Jeremy Deller, Richard Hamilton, Runa Islam, Oliver Payne and Nick Relph, Will Self, Patti Smith, Caruso St John and Philip Treacy, among others.
