Indonesian Contemporary Art and Design (ICAD) is the first and the only exhibition that initiated the collaboration of design, art, technology, entertainment, and hospitality industry; involving interior designers, graphic designers, photographers, videographers, scenographers, painters, sculptors, filmmakers, and many other creators. ICAD is held annually to explore the richness of Indonesia’s local wisdom in a contemporary way.

Held for the first time in Protected content , ICAD has become a large-scale exhibition, promoting design and contemporary art in Indonesia. It is held for 6 to 8 weeks, accompanied with fringe events, conventions, workshops, and film screening

ICAD 8 raises the issue of "essentialism" or simply represented by the word “MURNI ?” ("Pure?"). As an equivalent of the word "essence" or "essential", it is purely an Indonesian vocabulary which tends to be avoided because it implies a heavy and absolute burden, even though it contains a reasonably worth exploring complexity. The question mark ("?") at the end of the word "Pure" is an attempt to make the exhibition participants more critical of the meaning.
