Radical Entertainment at the ICA


From 9-26 July, Radical Entertainment, a program of events and art installations will run at the London ICA. Its premise is to show a range of dialogues with entertainment culture -- from direct critiques, like Ximena Cuevas' hack of a game show, to projects that revel in the lightness of pop culture debris, like Paper Rad animations. Curators Lina Dzuveronic-Russell and Lauren Cornell know that it's hard to be humorless about mass culture, hence the works that celebrate and revel in consumer entertainment. The dense program of events also suggests that the curators know they'll have to keep their audience... entertained. Details are on the ICA web site. -- Rachel Greene
