artists & participants
Which artworks do artists consider important and influential? Which pieces would artists like to see exhibited? What artworks had an effect on the practice of other artists? Conceived as an exhibition in two acts, Artists' Favourites will investigate these questions while examining the different criteria that determine the way in which art is understood, judged and how it is in fact classified. Over thirty of the foremost international artists have each been invited to select and introduce one of their favourite works of art made between 1947 (the year the ICA first opened) and today. The result is a subjective and multifarious selection of artworks revealing aspects of the invited artists' own practice, influences on their work and personal preferences in art, whilst mirroring the wide spectrum of contemporary artistic practice created during the fifty-seven years that the ICA has existed.
The invited artists are: Act 1: Pawel Althamer, Eleanor Antin, John Baldessari, Victor Burgin, Maurizio Cattelan, Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, Liam Gillick, Nan Goldin, Brian Jungen, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Tim Lee, Paul McCarthy, Jonathan Monk, Mariko Mori, Gabriel Orozco, Yvonne Rainer, Anri Sala, Yinka Shonibare, Rirkrit Tiravanija.
Act I will be followed by a short intermission with a series of talks and discussions.
Act II will commence on 30 July and last until 5 September. Act II's invited artists include Janet Cardiff, Martin Creed, Olafur Eliasson, Liam Gillick, Susan Hiller, Cildo Mereiles, Cornelia Parker, Tino Sehgal, Luc Tuymans, Gillian Wearing. Pressetext
