Points of Departure features new commissions resulting from six residencies in London and Ramallah by British and Palestinian artists.
The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London, is delighted to announce Points of Departure, a group exhibition and public programme that culminates a year of collaboration with Art School Palestine, the British Council and Delfina Foundation. The exhibition will be among the highlights of the 2013 Shubbak Festival in London (22 June - 6 July).
Points of Departure begins as a set of thoughtful explorations into the phenomena of liminality. A condition in which one's sense of identity is diffused, liminality leads not only to states of dislocation and disorientation, but also to new perspectives. From this starting point, all the exhibiting artists undertook research-orientated projects in the UK and Palestine, seeking to make meaning, and create new narratives, in response to urgent contemporary questions around nationalism and identity, history and place.
