Each year, the ICA welcomes a dynamic and inspiring group of philanthropists—a new community of patrons and advocates, alongside long-term friends of the museum—to celebrate our shared commitment to amplify the work and voices of women artists, leaders, philanthropists, and educators on a local, national, and international level. This year, the ICA Annual Women’s Luncheon is going virtual, with a live conversation between Mannion Family Curator Ruth Erickson and critically acclaimed artist Tschabalala Self.

Self is at the forefront of a generation of young artists who are advancing new modes of figurative painting that center African American selfhood and intersectional identities. The ICA is honored to support this artist and public access to her work, and to provide the very special experience of hearing directly from her live at this year’s event.
