Institute of International Visual Art (Iniva) is a non-profit organization that suports curators and artists. The mission of Iniva is to study how international community, various nationalities, cultures and religions are represented in modern art, which is a very hot issue for a multicultural city such as London. They regularly set up exhibitions featuring renowned British and foreign artists, including Yinka Shonibare, Hew Locke and Zineb Sedira. Before your visit go to the Events section on their site – lectures, conferences and workshops have brought Iniva its fame. They also have a great library with books on art and cultural studies, as well as their own publishing house. The headquarters of the Institute were built by an architect David Adjaye. It was the first time in 40 years when a building was constructed specifically for an art space using taxpayers money (the first one was Hayward gallery in Southbank).
