Over the ICA’s summer season, Journal brings together international artists who explore both historical events and more gradual social changes in their work. At the project’s core is an exhibition of five presentations by Rossella Biscotti, Edson Chagas, Cyprien Gaillard, Paulo Nazareth and Koki Tanaka. Of equal status are projects that have been made for the ICA’s online space: a series of talks and contributions to an ongoing online journal.

Further participants include Duncan Campbell, Paul Elliman, Bouchra Khalili, Marlie Mul, Ahmet Öğüt, Charlotte Prodger & Isla Leaver-Yap, Richard Sides, and Joshua Simon.
