Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA)
Contemporary Art is not for everyone, and the art here is how you say, ‘advanced’. But that doesn’t mean everyone can’t find a piece that fascinates them if they approach the art with an open mind. Perhaps the ICA best feature is the stunning view it provides of the Boston skyline on the cantilevered glass wing, which stretches over the Boston Harbor.
The museum has not always been in its modern facility, as the ICA has moved 13 times since its founding in 1936. In many ways this Diller Scofidio and Renfro designed building is reflective of the emerging tech culture in Boston, and shows of how the city seeks to marry the new wave of industries with the city’s treasured historic sites.
Art here is not just confined between frames. ICA is a hotbed for large-scale interactive art pieces that fully immerse audiences. Don’t come expecting to understand every piece you see. Be confused, be appalled, give yourself the opportunity to see the leaders of the avant-garde art movement on full display.
