LONDON—29 Jan-16 March 2003. The Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to present Publicness, an exhibition featuring three artists, Jens Haaning, Matthieu Laurette, and Aleksandra Mir at the ICA, from 29 January to 16 March 2003. At a moment when migration, globalisation, and questions of 'home' dominate the agenda, Publicness is a very timely exhibition

Jens Haaning, Matthieu Laurette and Aleksandra Mir have received much critical acclaim for their works, which both question and explore different legal, economic, social and cultural systems. Collectively, they operate between Europe, Asia, Australia, the United States, North and South America. This ICA exhibition offers UK audiences a major opportunity to explore the work of these artists. All three of them work with and interrogate the notion of the public realm. The majority of their works are not conceived primarily for gallery display but are developed within larger economies
