In 2003, the Institute took part in an invitational exhibition at Sam Francis Gallery, Santa Monica, which highlighted pairs of artists with a shared history of conversations about their work. The Institute paired with the Museum of Forgery, with which it has an ongoing relationship now spanning a decade. A number of items producted by the MOF are housed in the Institute's collection.
Over the years, the directors of the two institutions have discussed such topics of mutual interest as collections::archives; secrets::codes; mutability::mutation; games::rules; portability::compactness; and memory::traces.
Both institutions exhibited a selection of artworks they have created or commissioned in matching vitrines; in the photo above, the MOF vitrine is on the left and the ICI vitrine is on the right.
