The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) Boston is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its collection and signature waterfront building in the Seaport with the largest and most ambitious presentation of its collection to date.  

First Light: A Decade of Collecting at the ICA
August 17, 2016 to January 16, 2017

This exhibition is organized by the ICA’s curatorial department under the leadership of Eva Respini, Barbara Lee Chief Curator. First Light: A Decade of Collecting at the ICA is on view from August 17, 2016 to January 16, 2017. During the first week of October, midway through the presentation, there will be a rotation of some of the sections (or “chapters”) enabling more of the collection to be showcased and new works and juxtapositions to be explored. 

Don’t forget that every Thursday from 5PM – 9PM admission to the ICA Boston is free to the public so if money is tight, you can still come by on a Thursday evening to see this special exhibit.
