By the end of 2015 we will have presented 50 different exhibitions in 50 weeks at the ICA studio as part of our extraordinary project, fig-2. Now we’re asking for your support to help us create the crucial final component; a publication that will document the full scale of this incredible experience, ensuring that it will be remembered for generations to come.

It’s been an amazing year so far. The programme has spanned visual arts, literature, science, fashion, design and performance, with contributors ranging from activists, architects and actors to dancers, sculptors, speakers and even a cybernetics expert.

We plan to capture each of these exhilarating exhibitions in a celebratory publication, bringing together a series of artist interviews, curatorial texts and images of the work or performance in-situ. Additional contributions will come from from prominent members of the art world, such as art critic Louisa Buck; Contemporary Art Society director Caroline Douglas; fig-1 curator and director Mark Francis; Serpentine Gallery co-director Hans Ulrich Obrist; writer and lecturer Gilda Williams; and Tate Modern curator of performance Catherine Wood.

Not only will this publication provide a record of fig-2 for the near 18,000 visitors who have been to the studio, it will also offer a unique insight into the ambition and diversity of the project for anyone who was not able to see it for themselves. Much more than a catalogue, it will be our legacy.

In return for your donation we’re offering a range of wonderful rewards, such as limited-edition prints by Hiraki Sawa, afternoon tea with Bruce McLean in his studio and exclusive access to a VIP drinks reception with the fig-2 artists at our closing party in December.

fig-2 is realised in association with the Outset Contemporary Art Fund. The curator position for the project has been supported by the Art Fund. Find out more about the fig-2 programme.

The publication is complete!
