Live Weekends: Against Gravity

26 Nov 201028 Nov 2010

Inspired by Italo Calvino’s notion that ‘lightness is a value, rather than a defect’, the Against Gravity Live Weekend at the ICA invites audiences to explore contemporary art face to face. Immerse yourself in Davide Savorani’s performance and Matthew Stone’s multimedia live art performance, explore Conrad Ventaur’s installation, watch intimate film screenings and premieres, submerge yourself into the landscapes of HTRK and more.

Conceived by the talented young curator Catherine Borra, this lively and immersive weekend is generous with experience and emotion, challenging the constraints of creatives to ‘represent their own time’.

Against Gravity demonstrates the ICA’s continued dedication to promoting emerging artists, artists’ film and future generations of creative minds.
