The Institute of Contemporary Art’s Fall 2023 Premiere is Friday, Sept. 8. The museum is inviting community members to come out for a free celebration of two new exhibits — “Morgan Bassichis: More Little Ditties” and “Paul Chan: Breathers.”

This season’s new arrivals will be welcomed with an event including a conversation with artist Paul Chan, a performance by DJ EASE, and a live show from composer Kate NV. Local food trucks will be there for dinner and drinks will be available at the ICA Cafe.

This event is free to the public, but the ICA is asking that people RSVP if they’re planning on attending.
