Celebrating 75 years of contemporary art in Boston

Founded in 1936, the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston is one of the oldest museums dedicated to contemporary art in the country. Over the past 75 years, the ICA has been at the fore in identifying the most important artists of its time and presenting their work in Boston, including Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Anish Kapoor and Damián Ortega. Since its founding, the ICA has championed creativity in all its forms—visual art, performance, music, film and video—and supported the artistic impulse to cross boundaries, challenge convention, and explore new forms of expression. This fall, we celebrate the spirit of adventure that has always defined the ICA with a season of non-stop art and performance. The centerpiece of our 75th anniversary season is Dance/Draw, a landmark exhibition exploring the dynamic exchange taking place between visual art and dance today. Be part of the festivities taking place throughout fall, including a rich schedule of exhibitions, dance performances, a members-only celebration, and, of course, a free birthday party!
