We believe in the socially transformative power of art and artists.

We declare that this power can be unleashed through many kinds of artistic practices and through the deliberate inclusion of many voices.

We commit to activating the ICA as an inclusive platform to research, support and share art’s transformative power.


Why Declaration?

Declarations mark beginnings, clarify intentions, and propose a social contract. This is true whether we think about something as private as a declaration of love between two people, or as public as the Declaration of Independence. Declarations invite response, whether we agree or disagree. They can take many forms—words, actions, works of art.

The ICA’s inaugural exhibition is itself a declaration, a first response to the question “what can the ICA contribute to its context?” It proposes that artists’ declarations are especially crucial during this intense period of change in the U.S. Emphasizing new work by artists based in Richmond and around the globe, it deliberately mixes work by artists of varied generations, backgrounds and perspectives. Such diversity is essential to any healthy community, whether a university, a city or a nation. These works mirror the multitude of voices that we encounter on a daily basis, speaking in different modes, tones, and intensities.

Parents may wish to preview Declaration before bringing children. 

Exploring the exhibition

There are many paths through Declaration. You may start on any floor of the ICA. You will find art throughout the building—the open spaces of the Markel Center allow encounters with art and ideas from many vantage points.

Because contemporary art takes varied forms, throughout the building you will encounter art that ‘speaks’ in many ways: art for looking, art for listening, art that invites participation. There are also projects created in collaboration with Richmonders—here and around the city.
