From 9 June, Pablo Bronstein presents Sketches for Regency Living, a groundbreaking exhibition in which, for the first time, an individual artist works across the entire ICA introducing major architectural interventions, as well as choreographing extraordinary art and ballet performances.  Pablo Bronstein: Sketches for Regency Living. 9 June 2011 – 25 September 2011 * Free

Bronstein draws upon London’s Regency history and that of the ICA building, using a wide range of media to explore his interest in architecture, from performance and drawing to installation and sculpture. His work demonstrates an affinity for how architecture and sculpture intervene in personal identity and inform our movements and social mores. Intimate and stylized tours through the building-wide exhibition, inspired by guided visits around historic properties, offer an insight into the history of Nash House and Bronstein’s work.

Bronstein’s most ambitious exhibition to date, Sketches for Regency Living penetrates every area of the ICA. Throughout the exhibition, existing architecture is embellished with forms that reference the Regency period, while visitors encounter neo-classical structures and daily choreographed performances. Bronstein combines elements of the past with the present, and encourages the ICA to engage with its own identity.

The exhibition includes a retrospective programme of Bronstein’s dance works; newly choreographed performances; and an original ballet devised by Bronstein and co-commissioned by the ICA and Tramway.

Pablo Bronstein (born 1977, Buenos Aires) is an artist based in London. He attended Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, at the University of the Arts London, the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, and graduated from Goldsmiths College of Art.

His work also includes live performance: his Plaza Minuet for Tate Triennial 2006 used involved choreographed movement about the allery space by Baroque-trained dancers. He has also given an architectural tour of London.[1]
