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.
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.
