Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) is an evolving, radical visual arts organisation dedicated to developing an artistic programme that reflects on the social and political impact of globalisation.
With the Stuart Hall Library as a critical and creative hub, they collaborate with artists, curators, researchers and cultural producers to challenge conventional notions of diversity and difference. They engage a wide audience, particularly young people, in discourse and debate on issues surrounding the politics of race, class and gender.
Their programme works predominantly with British-born and British-based visual artists of African and Asian descent supporting them at different stages in their careers. We offer residencies, commission new work and promote existing practices enabling artistic ambition and development.
Founded in 1994, under the leadership of renowned academic Professor Stuart Hall, Iniva is a non-profit organisation. It has established itself as a pioneering arts organisation in the artistic environment in the UK and beyond. Now Iniva looks towards the future whilst acknowledging its 25-year history and legacy.
