The ICA and the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) present artist Diana Oh’s latest performance installation—The Artist in Their Element—as Artist-In-Community Resident at A.R.T. Oh and a group of “Queer and Trans Identified Powerhouse Influencers of Color,” at the invitation of the artist, will strike a pose for portrait painting that celebrates queer magic and QTPOC love. They’ll each showcase their own personal fashion aesthetic in a staged tableau at the ICA. A commissioned artist will paint their portrait in tableau, and you are invited to observe, muse, sketch, or take in the beauty and applaud! Drawing materials provided; participants also welcome to bring personal sketchbooks and pencils. 

Please Note: Seating is first come, first served. RSVP recommended. 

This performance installation—The Artist in Their Element—is created and staged by Diana Oh in collaboration with artists of the Boston community. The event is the third installment in the artist’s Clairvoyance series. For more information on Oh and earlier performance installations at Harvard Yard and Boston Public Library, please visit
