ICA Boston – “i’m yours: Encounters with Art in Our Times”

Especially now, in view of the pandemic and the political conflicts in the USA, art can offer a refuge. What role could and should art play in times when culture and the economy lie idle and inequalities and racism are becoming increasingly evident through Covid-19? i'm yours: Encounters with Art in Our Times celebrates personal and physical encounters with works from ICA’s magnificent collection.

Visitors walk through exhibition spaces that are deliberately kept “raw,” in which different themes are negotiated: concepts of home, history, and social transformation. A separate section is dedicated to the theme of identity with numerous portraits and sculptures. The list of artists shown is absolutely top-notch, and many of them are also represented in the Deutsche Bank Collection. The spectrum ranges from Louise Bourgeois, Alice Neel, Jenny Holzer, and Nan Goldin to Kader Attia, Zanele Muholi, and Wangechi Mutu.
