The American South is rife with stories of seedy histories and a colorful present. The ICA brings 35 artists of various generations, locations, and persuasions making work that talks about the land under the Mason-Dixon line. Using a vast array of mediums from photography to performance, painting to sculpture, this show strings together stories of the South and voices that are particularly left out of mainstream dialog; black Americans, outsider artists, and the poor. Popular contemporary artists such as Kara Walker, Kerry James Marshall, David Hammons, and Theaster Gate among many others will have their work displayed.
Every Thursday night from 5-9pm the ICA has Free admission, the perfect time to visit and see a really special show.
