ICA/Boston  The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston. Located in a breathtaking waterfront building, the ICA is Boston's destination for new art and ideas.

"These women were heroes. They worked to upend the system. They took art to places no one else did. They protested, sometimes with cunning humor. They threw conceptual grenades. They showed their own work, and in time the art world blinked awake and started exhibiting it, too," @bostonglobe. We Wanted a Revolution is on view now at the ICA. .

Some sound advice on how to be an artist from a few members of the ICA’s Artist Advisory Council!

This summer at the ICA, Boston-born choreographer Will Rawls and his collaborators will investigate cultural violence and disappearance through movement, language, installation, and projection. Catch a glimpse of Rawls’s working process on Jul 22 at the ICA. .

“What puts us in the mood to struggle for freedom? What emboldens us to drop our greatest fears in favor of our most radical dreams? What gives us the courage, as well as the lightness, to believe that a justice-rich and love-struck future is realizable in Time?”
Marcyliena Morgan and Christina Twicken developed a playlist for exhibition “We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women 1965-85,” on view now at the ICA. Link in bio!

Luther Price is Boston-based filmmaker and video artist who constructs his pieces by using found footage drawn from a vast array of sources, including documentaries, pornography, and Hollywood features. His practice involves physically manipulating film, exposing the medium to extreme conditions by scratching, painting, and distressing the surface, or even burying it underground to collect dust, insects, and mold. In this piece in the ICA’s collection, Number 9, the artist produced four hundred slides projected by five carousels in an evenly spaced row and simultaneously looped, an arrangement that connects his work with animation and early cinema.
