See it first!

On July 4, the ICA opens the ICA Watershed, a new, seasonal space in East Boston. Housed in a former copper pipe and sheet metal factory in the Boston Harbor Shipyard and Marina, the 15,000-square-foot, formerly condemed space will be a place to gather and experience immersive artwork. The Watershed is always free and ferry service is included with ICA admission.

The Watershed opens with Diana Thater. A pioneering voice in video installation art since the early 1990s, Thater is internationally renowned for immersive, atmospheric spatial transformations. Her installation for the ICA will illuminate the Watershed with colored light and moving-image projections while reflecting on the fragility of the natural world.


Free admission to the Watershed is made possible by the generosity of Alan and Vivien Hassenfeld and the Hassenfeld Family Foundation.
