Catalogue Note

In 1999 the ICA presented Capital a major solo exhibition by British
artist Mark Wallinger. The exhibition featured a series of portraits of
homeless people – actually Wallinger's friends in costume – standing in the doorways of banks. Wallinger also took part in Pandaemonium, Festival of Moving Images, at the ICA in 1996, and City Racing 1988- 1998, 2001.

Wallinger's contribution to the ICA's 60th anniversary auction is the
painting Self Portrait (Lucida Console Bold), 2007. This work is from a new series of 'self portraits' by the artist, each of which features the
letter 'I' in a different font, on a uniform white background.
