We’re happy to announce that Glasgow-based artist Luke Fowler has taken up an artist residency at the ICA, generously supported by Creative Scotland through the Creative Futures programme.

Luke began his residency at the ICA with us last night with the premier of the film All Divided Selves, at our ever-growing Artists’ Film Club. The evening proved to be a huge success with a full house!

We were delighted to see that the audience included many curators, producers and writers, such as representatives from LUX and Frieze, so a great success for Luke and the ICA is delighted to be working with him.

As part of the residency, Luke will be contributing to our online SOUNDWORKS project, taking inspiration from Bruce Nauman’s Days, which will be exhibited at the ICA from 19 June to 23 September. He will also produce a piece directly inspired by the ICA’s Archive.

Luke will soon be featured in the ICA blog
