Gregor Muir named ICA executive director

11th January 2011

The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London's not-for-profit, multi-disciplinary arts centre, has appointed Gregor Muir as its new executive director.

Since 2004, Muir has served as the director of the Hauser & Wirth London gallery. There, he organised events with established artists such as Henry Moore, Louise Bourgeois and Francis Picabia and emerging talent like Zhang Enli, Jakub Julian Ziolkowski and Anj Smith.

In 1997, he founded the Lux Gallery in Hoxton Square and later became the Kramlich curator of contemporary art at the Tate, where he worked on the In-a-Gadda-da-Vida show with Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas and Angus Fairhurst.

ICA chair Alison Myners said the council of the institute is 'delighted' to appoint Muir as its new executive director and noted his wealth of experience in both the private and public sectors.

Muir added: 'The ICA is needed to give artists a voice, allowing them to display their work while exploring new ideas in a welcoming environment. I very much look forward to being a part of the ICA's future.'

The ICA is currently hosting the Bloomberg New Contemporaries exhibition, which showcases 49 emerging artists working in painting, sculpture, photography, film, animation and performance.
