MIAMI, FLA.- The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami opens the doors to its new permanent home in the Miami Design District on December 1, 2017, with a bold inaugural program that reflects the museum’s commitment to championing new narratives in contemporary art and to providing a platform for the exchange of art and ideas. With more than double the exhibition space in its new permanent home, ICA Miami presents its first thematic survey and most ambitious exhibition to date, bringing together the work of contemporary innovators with that of modern masters. The new building also enables the museum to expand its commitment to mounting monographic presentations that offer new insight on under-recognized artists and deepen scholarship in the field; and to commissioning boundary-pushing works of art through the debut of six new large-scale works, on view throughout the museum and its sculpture garden.

Highlights of the inaugural program include The Everywhere Studio, a thematic survey tracing the impact and influence of the artist’s studio from post-war to the present day. Focused solo exhibitions of work by Edward and Nancy Kienholz, Senga Nengudi, and Hélio Oiticica respectively bring to light significant periods of each artist’s work, providing renewed understandings of their practices and underscoring the museum’s commitment to developing new scholarship in post-war and contemporary art. Robert Gober’s untitled series of photographs (1978 – 2000) and an untitled drain (1993 – 94), newly pledged long-term loans to the museum from Irma and Norman Braman, are on special view, as well as exhibitions of newly commissioned works by Chris Ofili and emerging Miami-based artist Tomm El-Saieh. The museum’s outdoor sculpture garden features a significant sculpture by George Segal, a major loan from Miami-based collector Martin Z. Margulies, alongside large-scale installations and site-specific commissions by Allora & Calzadilla, Abigail DeVille, and Miami-based artist Mark Handforth.

“We are thrilled to unveil ICA Miami’s new permanent home in December and to sustain our commitment to free general admission, inviting the entire community to engage with our dynamic inaugural program,” said Ellen Salpeter, Director of ICA Miami. “We look forward to building on the diverse spectrum of exhibitions and educational programs offered year round—from workshops for teens and youth, to public talks and activities, to seminars for graduate students—that foster cross-cultural dialogue and the exchange of ideas.”

“The inaugural program of the new ICA Miami represents an expansion of the depth and breadth of our programmatic approach,” said Alex Gartenfeld, Deputy Director and Chief Curator. “Thematic surveys such as The Everywhere Studio will explore critical topics in contemporary practice through the work of today’s leading artists as well as their predecessors. These major exhibitions, in addition to solo presentations of rarely exhibited bodies of work like those of Senga Nengudi and Hélio Oiticica, are key examples of ICA Miami’s commitment to bringing fresh perspectives to our understanding of contemporary art, fostering dialogue, and expanding scholarship in the field. The inaugural program also represents the global and local voices represented in ICA Miami’s programs, from renowned Trinidadian artist Chris Ofili, to emerging Miami artist Tomm El-Saieh.”
