Excursus is a multifaceted initiative at the ICA in which artists, designers, publishers, and other cultural producers whose work engages the archive and publication are invited to create a platform for more intimate programming, alongside an online residency at excursus.icaphila.org. Building on the idea of an excursus (an exposition or digression from a primary text) each invited artist-in-residence activates and re-imagines both the physical and discursive space of the ICA. Follow the project at: excursus.icaphila.org.
