As part of the presentations and live performances taking place at the ICA Galleries and off-site, the exhibition will include Japanese artist Koki Tanaka’s new commission Precarious Tasks #9: 24hrs Gathering, in which Tanaka embarks on a series of events, which he refers to as ‘actions’, over a 24-hour period.
