For over 65 years, the Institute of Contemporary Art has been introducing to Boston and the country some of the most important contemporary artists of our time, from Pablo Picasso and Robert Rauschenberg to Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman. This excellence in presenting contemporary art began with the ICA's inception in 1936. The ICA's first director, James Sachs Plaut, envisioned this new institution as "an experimental laboratory in which we would present a platform for things that were happening on the contemporary art scene."
Brand New location on the Waterfront:
The first major cultural institution to be built in Boston in almost 100 years, the new ICA has tripled its exhibition space and includes a performing arts theatre, educational facilities, a media and technology center, a bookstore, gift shop, and restaurant.
