With a National Art Pass you get
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
The ICA supports radical art and culture through a vibrant programme of exhibitions, films, events, talks and debates.
The Institute of Contemporary Arts was founded in 1946 by a group of artists and connoisseurs including Roland Penrose, Peter Watson and Herbert Read.
It continues to support living artists through exhibitions and residencies, and has hosted the debut solo shows of Damien Hirst, Steve McQueen, Richard Prince and Luc Tuymans. The ICA was also one of the first venues to present The Clash and The Smiths, as well as bands such as Throbbing Gristle.
