Sarah Parrish leads discussion on Françoise Grossen’s Inchworm from the ICA’s collection. Parrish is a doctoral candidate in the History of Art & Architecture at Boston University, where she is completing her dissertation on fiber art. The project has roots in her work as the Research Fellow for the ICA exhibition Fiber: Sculpture 1960-Present in 2014.
ICA Gallery Talks are offered the second Sunday of every month (except January). Conversations are led by artists, scholars, and other creative professionals who share their perspectives on contemporary art at the ICA.
