The Institute of Cultural Inquiry

The Institute of Cultural Inquiry was founded in 1989 by a small group of L.A. based artists and became a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit Corporation in 1994. ICI activities are centered on exposing and unraveling hegemonic cultural trends through a unique method that straddles the divide between scholarly texts and visual art. Occupying a space between collaboration and collective, the ICI exists through the activities of its Associates working in a variety of mediums, and methodologies. Over the last two decades, the ICI has produced an array of performances, displays, publications and ambitious time-based projects that reach a large and diverse global audience. Following is a list of ICI projects that Lise Patt has initiated or co-initiated:
