How to join:
This event will live stream on the ICA’s Instagram Live TV Channel. You can join us here.
Please join us for a conversation with inaugural ICA Facade Project Artist Amir H. Fallah and Executive Director Alison Gass. Fallah will discuss his current exhibition and how it relates to his upcoming installation at the ICA. Amir H. Fallah creates paintings, sculptures, and installations that utilize personal history as an entry point to discuss race, representation, the body, and the memories of cultures and countries left behind. Through this process, the artist’s works employ nuanced and emotive narratives that evoke an inquiry about identity, the immigrant experience, and the history of portraiture. You can join us here.
About P(ractice) S(afe) A(rt) with the ICA:
The ICA San José is delighted to roll out a plan for opportunities to engage with us during the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic. We’re calling these PSA’s from the ICA. Though they may be a lot like Public Service Announcements (they can educate and bring awareness!), here PSA actually means: P(ractice) S(afe) A(rt)! These will include free programming for all of our audiences, member-specific programming, and even some physical outdoor opportunities to see Art. Join us as we celebrate our fortieth anniversary over the course of this year, delve into conversations about what the future of museums and arts organizations might look like after Covid-19, how museums are reinventing themselves, how artistic practice is changing, how artists are coping, and much more!
We look forward to seeing you soon as we all practice Safe Art together.
