Together we can face today and imagine tomorrow. In partnership with artists, educators, and filmmakers, check out our collection of activities to explore on your own time, on and off the screen.
Celebrate the newly opened exhibitions William Kentridge: KABOOM!, and i’m yours: Encounters with Art in Our Times with your family from home through art making, art explorations, and a virtual cinema.
All activities are self-guided. Activities are designed for a variety of ages. Please note there will be no live virtual programs this month.
Inspired by works from the ICA exhibition i’m yours: Encounters with Art in Our Times, check out these conversation starters to help inspire dialogue in your family. Print, cut out, and use them whenever you need some inspiration.
