ICA unveils fall lineup of exhibits

The galleries at the Institute for Contemporary Art have been closed since late June to install a new lineup of fall exhibits.

Here’s what’s coming up at the museum + what you can expect from the upcoming premiere event.

There will be three new exhibitions to check out in September.

“Resume at the Point of Interruption” | dana washington-queen

A series of video installations, collages, and sculptures make up this exhibit, which asks questions about freedom + escape. It’ll be located in Gallery 1.

This project will consist of a year-long pavilion for self-publishing, collective reading, and other programs at the ICA. Head to Gallery 4 to experience the “book-in-space” by existing within a publication.

The free opening event will take place from 6-9 p.m. on Fri., Sept. 9. Guests can explore the new exhibits, enjoy food from local food trucks, and listen to music by DJ Ohbliv + Ouri. There will also be a cash bar. Pro tip: You can RSVP to get a reminder about the event.

“Resume at the Point of Interruption” and “I Keep Missing My Water” will remain at the ICA until January 8. You can see “The Medium is the Massage” through June 18.
