About

Ikon announces the forthcoming group show Faster Than Ever - an exhibition invented out of necessity in response to the challenges arising from the Covid-19 pandemic. Involving more than 20 artists from across the world, Faster Than Ever is an exercise in capitalising on chance, making the most of incongruity and happy accidents.

Participating artists include Thomas Bewick, Julie Brook, Alice Cattaneo, Lee Bul, Edmund Clark, Martin Creed, Kate Groobey, Graham Gussin, Arturo Herrera, Carmen Herrera, On Kawara, Lutz and Guggisberg, Haroon Mirza, Ivan Morison, Nástio Mosquito, Grace Ndiritu, Cornelia Parker, Navin Rawanchaikul, Noguchi Rika, Shimabuku, Dayanita Singh, Bosco Sodi, Nancy Spero and Beat Streuli.

In light of logistical difficulties in the current landscape, Ikon has departed from the advertised programme to curate a group exhibition from artworks it has accumulated over time. Though not a collecting institution, Ikon houses an extraordinary range of paintings, sculptures and photographs, as well as the many films, sound pieces and wall drawings held as digital files. With the permission of the participating artists, these works are released back into the galleries in a combination and context that were never initially envisioned. Here, propositions that inform Ikon's activity shine through; above all, the continuity between artistic experience and everyday life.
