The ICRA Launch
Monday 1 July 2019
The Academicians’ Room at the Royal Academy was full and buzzing with enthusiasm at the launch of ICRA on Monday 1 July. There was a broad cross-section of people in attendance, many of whom had travelled considerable distances to find out more about the association, its aims and objectives. Board members, Pierre Valentin and Toby Treves addressed the room and were joined by Sir Nicholas Serota who gave an excellent speech in support of ICRA stating that its formation was an important and timely venture.
The response to ICRA’s formation has been overwhelmingly positive and the Board is grateful for the support shown for the enterprise to date. ICRA is now open for membership and details of its next event will be posted soon.
Good catalogues raisonnés transform our understanding of an artist’s work
— Sir Nicholas Serota
We live in an ‘exploded’ world where a sense of belonging is more difficult to achieve than ever before, this is why we need communities of like-minded people and ICRA is exactly that.
— Pierre Valentin
