Donald A. Moore Elected Chair of ICA London

The Institute of Contemporary Art London has announced that Donald A. Moore was elected chair of the council. He succeeds Alison Myners who led the institution for six years and introduced a new governance structure.

Myners said, “Donald has been an outstanding council member for five years and vice chair. His wide experience across the cultural and business worlds will be invaluable to the ambitious plans we hold for the ICA and bring an exceptional level of support to [Stefan Kalmár] as he shapes the institute’s future.” Kalmár will start his term as director of the institute on November 23.

Moore is chair of Morgan Stanley Group Europe and has been a managing director at Morgan Stanley since 1986. He sits on the international council of Tate and the photography acquisition committee of Tate Modern. Previously, Moore has been a trustee at the National Gallery, London, and a member of the advisory board of the London Symphony Orchestra as well as a member of the corporate board of Carnegie Hall. He joined the ICA council in 2011 and became deputy chair in 2015.

“The ICA has gone from strength to strength under Alison and [Gregor Muir]’s leadership and I am looking forward to working with Stefan and council to take this important institution to the next level, ensuring its vital relevance as a leading voice within the culture of the twenty-first century.”
