ICA Associates: Factory Floor present 25 25 + Haroon Mirza & Klara Lewis 

Former ICA Associates: Factory Floor are hosting a special night to celebrate their upcoming second album release on DFA Records. Their album, 25 25, is a hi-energy minimalist dance exploration. They will be accompanied by special live performances from British visual artist Haroon Mirza, who has won international acclaim for installations that test the interplay and friction between sound and light waves and electric current. He will be collaborating and performing with sound-art installation artist Jack Jelfs and composer and studio engineer Shiva Feshareki. Swedish artist Klara Lewis will then follow, with her unique, minimalist music using field recordings, found sounds, samples and digital manipulation.

 David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-Life

David Hockney presents us with 82 portraits, each completed in three six-hour bursts and worked in old fashioned acrylic paint. The pictures are identical in size, the figures are all shown in full length and in the same chair against the same blue vivid background. His subjects, all friends, family and acquaintances, include office staff, fellow artists, curators and gallerists such as John Baldessari and Larry Gagosian. His work will be showcasing at the Royal Academy of Arts until October 2.
