Neïl Beloufa: Counting on People
24 September–16 November

In this first UK institutional solo exhibition of award-winning French-Algerian artist Neïl Beloufa’s work, the ICA presents his latest film and sculpture installations. The exhibition explores how we choose to communicate, interact and interpret the world since the advent of the internet.

Counting on People presents a series of new sculptures and video works, exhibited in architectural installations specifically designed to break the viewer’s conventional engagement with the screen. The exhibition features three new films, Data for Desire, VENGEANCE and Home is Whenever I’m with You, a co-commission by the ICA, London and The Banff Centre, Canada, as well as a new presentation of La domination du monde (World Domination), which premiered at Palais de Tokyo in 2012. 

Counting on People continues at The Banff Centre’s Walter Phillips Gallery, Canada (November 2014–March 2015) and La Casa Encendida, Spain (February–April 2015).

Beware Wet Paint
24 September–16 November
Korakrit Arunanondchai, Isabelle Cornaro, Jeff Elrod, Nikolas Gambaroff, Parker Ito, David Ostrowski, Pamela Rosenkranz, Ned Vena and Christopher Wool

A collaboration between the ICA and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, this group show presents paintings by artists for whom painting forms a single strand within a multidisciplinary practice. The exhibition title comes from Richard Hamilton’s recollection of Marcel Duchamp’s words which placed emphasis on the word beware, underlining the disruptive potential of what might otherwise be considered a traditional art form.

Curated by ICA Executive Director Gregor Muir, Beware Wet Paint is also presented at La Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin (29 October 2014–1 February 2015).
