Forward Programme 2020-21

Ikon is delighted to announce plans for 2020-21 including exhibitions, off-site projects and events.

Highlights include shows entirely of new work by Birmingham-born John Newling and Australian Aboriginal artists Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce, a major survey of the 1990s seen through the lens of Ikon’s exhibition programme, a UK debut for internationally acclaimed Czech artist Krištof Kintera and a much anticipated retrospective of work by Lahore-based Aisha Khalid.

In addition we will present the third annual Migrant Festival and continue to work off-site at HMP Grendon, Buckinghamshire and across the canal network with Slow Boat.
