Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore

About Us

The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) Singapore is the curatorial division of LASALLE.

Situated at LASALLE’s dynamic city campus, the ICA Singapore’s five galleries present a programme of curated international exhibitions alongside exhibitions organised with students, academic staff and alumni. The institute provides curatorial expertise and resources in the areas of exhibition development, display and mediation, publishing and education, and manages the LASALLE College of the Arts Collection.

Founded as the Dr Earl Lu Gallery in 1986, the ICA Singapore is committed to exchange between artists and LASALLE students. Through experimental art projects and publications, the institute fosters public appreciation, debate and critical viewing of contemporary art. Projects are realized in close collaboration with artists. They reflect Southeast Asia’s cultural diversity, and connect with new directions in international art.


For over thirty years the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore has played a unique role in the Southeast Asian contemporary art scene.
