A Visit to the Institue of Contemporary Art…
this was the first time i had gone to the ICA in boston, so naturally i was skeptical of what would be exhibited because you never know with modern art; however, i was extremely pleased with everything i saw. the location is pretty accessible from the center of the city, but it also is located just far enough away that the surrounding area is refreshingly calm. this is going to definitely be a new escape spot for me… anyways my favorite exhibits were
1- Shepard Fairey, who is known to the general public as the artist of the most recent, remastered Led Zeppelin album Mothership, had similarly styled posters on display that commented on how capitalism has enabled our society to be solely concentrated on money. my particular favorite was Nixon Money.
2- Christian Jankowski had a video, The Hunt, that i thought was extremely enticing. the video consisted of a man, might have been the artist not sure, who enters a grocery store with a bow and arrow and shot his bow and arrow at all of the products he wanted to buy. we are all animals in the end
3-Damian Ortega disassembled a film camera and hung each piece in order of how they would be put together in order to highlight how important each part was and to exhibit the “movement” of each piece
