The Contemporary Art Society, designed by Diller Scofidio＋ Renfro, is located on the edge of the Fan Pier area in Boston's southern port. It is the first new museum in Boston in a century and the first building project designed by DS＋R in North America.
The Contemporary Art Association is a must-fee and not cheap. Although the art is relatively unknown, but the art exhibition here is very wonderful, although the ticket is small expensive but also value for money.
Having slagged off an appalling exhibition at the Guggenheim in NYC on TA a couple of days ago, I found myself in Boston visiting the IcA. And what a total treat that turned out to be. I was surprised, I smiled and I laughed, which is what I expect from a good gallery or exhibition. Moreover, I participated in description-defying work by choreographer William Forsythe, entitled ''Choreographic Objects''. You''ll know what I mean when you visit, and you should. There was also some fantastic stuff from musician/artist Jason Moran, along with other works from the collection. Worth every penny. Recommended.
Beautiful experience! and it's free on Thursdays for everyone.
First Friday events are a fun and worthwhile to attend. Impromptu art talk in the gallery add depth to the fun themed nights of music, food, and drinks.
In 2006, the Institute of Contemporary Art moved from Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood into this new building on Boston’s waterfront. The Institute was founded in 1936 to exhibit the work of established and emerging contemporary artists. There are no permanent exhibits. The Institute of Contemporary Art also presents theater, dance, and film productions.
A great contemporary space that has held some awesome exhibitions.
Fun place. Love the summer wknds out in patio. Worth the membership.
