ICA & No Alternative Girls

Video Presentation
By: Lina Dzuverovic-Russell

The Institute of Contemporary Arts in London is one of Europe’s leading arts venues. Its forward-looking programme of Cinema, Live Arts, Exhibitions and Talks presents the newest issues and freshest approaches being adopted by international artists. The role of the ICA is to engage, challenge and inspire. The ICA upholds an equal opportunities policy and has a particularly strong interest in presenting women artists.
ICA Interaction presents a selection of women’s work shown at the ICA in the past 5 years. The Institute had the pleasure of welcoming some of the most eminent contemporary artists and thinkers including Laurie Anderson, Patti Smith, Vivienne Westwood, Marina Abramovic, Karen Finley, Abigail Lane, Helen Chadwick, Nan Goldin, to name but a few. In this presentation Lina Russel will concentrate on 2 ICA-programmes: Jezebel and on Bad Girls.
No Alternative Girls
is a touring video package of women’s performance, films and rock music. Programmed around a wide variety of issues, such as sexuality, social injustice, urban existence, violence, rape, addiction and madness, the programme ranges from films by different women film-makers, to the spoken word confrontationalist Lydia Lunch and ground-breaking performer Diamanda Galas. From the controversial pleasure activist Annie Sprinkle to the legend of New York underground film-making Beth B. including a selection of video-clips by the most exciting female bands of the indie rock scene, this programme encompasses the work of the leading figures of today’s avant-garde.
The films and videos presented during this presentation are also available for viewing at the City of Women VideoLibrary.
