Published on the occasion of the ICA’s 60th anniversary, this special print portfolio is a unique opportunity to own a collection of works commissioned from six British and international artists, figures who the ICA believes are helping to define the art practice of the future. The artists are Carol Bove, Peter Coffin, Ryan Gander, Judith Hopf, Rosalind Nashashibi and Tomas Saraceno.

The portfolio is produced as an edition of 60 (plus 10 artist’s proofs) and comes in a custom-made box. Each print is 40x50cm and is signed and numbered by the artist. All proceeds go to support the ICA visual arts programme. All works are currently on display at the ICA.

Carol Bove
Bove’s silkscreen print is based on a string drawing, and is printed using saffron. The artist feels that string drawings offer an interesting parallel with instruction-based conceptual artworks of the 1960s – even though they come from a very different, and craft-based, tradition. Carol Bove is based in New York, and her work appears courtesy of the artist and Hotel, London.

Peter Coffin
The silkscreen print by Coffin is related to a series of sculptures by the artist, entitled Sculpture Silhouette Props, which recreate icons of sculptural history as two-dimensional cut-outs. Coffin says that the silhouettes “represent a static memory – all of sculpture in one mass.” Peter Coffin is based in New York.

Ryan Gander
Gander’s works often create fictional histories, and his print is a photograph of a watercolour illustration by Mark Beesley – one that portrays the ICA’s artistic director, Ekow Eshun, carrying an abacus and a torch in the basement of the organisation. Ryan Gander is based in London.

Judith Hopf
Hopf has worked in a wide range of media, offering an absurdist – and ultimately utopian – exploration of artistic forms and everyday conventions. Her silkscreen print was inspired by the work of Bridget Riley, whose style is here unexpectedly used to depict a nose. Judith Hopf is based in Berlin.

Rosalind Nashashibi
Nashashibi is best known for her film works, but has also made a number of collages, and her mixed media print is based on one such work. The artist says that the piece “is a sort of wish or fantasy self-portrait and simultaneously a portrait of a friend.” Rosalind Nashashibi is based in London.

Tomas Saraceno
In 2006, in a commission for the Barbican Centre, London, Saraceno travelled to the world’s largest salt lake, Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. The artist’s photograph captures a sensation that is created in this extreme environment: that of immersion in the clouds. Tomas Saraceno is based in Frankfurt am Main.
