ICA Yerevan (Institute of Contemporary Art)
The Institute of Contemporary Art is an institution dedicated to capacity building. For us, education, science, and production are interconnected and organized as one global process. The ICA School, the Project and Research Labs, the exhibition hall and the library, the studios, and the Nest Art Residency all aim at contributing to the development of the art economy in Armenia by implementing various programs, providing technical facilities and training for artists, art critics, and curators, while producing researches at the crossroads of art, culture, humanities and social sciences, as well as designing art collections, exhibitions, and creative platforms. Relying on the context-sensitive and context-creating nature of contemporary art, the ICA team plays the role of a conveyor, seeking to share the power of art to bring about change not only in the field of art but also in solving the social, cultural, and political issues faced by Armenia.
