The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) celebrates their 40th Anniversary with six new exhibitions opening on April 5th.
Join us at the Opening Reception for all exhibitions on Sunday, April 5th, from 2-4PM. Exhibiting artists will be in attendance.
Soo Sunny Park: Viewing Filter (Veil of Vision) explores light as a sculptural material. She reconfigures boundary materials –fencing, plastic, glass, sheetrock – to expand and explore the space between inside and outside, sculptural and drawing, vision and perception, objects and their shadows. In Personal Alchemy, three Bay Area artists including Maria Paz, Muzae Sesay, and Terri Friedman transform personal memories, concerns, and pain into work that inspires positivity and empathy. Each artist uses art as a catalyst for healing and combatting anxieties, both personal and political. David Ellingsen: Weather Patterns is an immersive projection installation that visualizes milestones in climate breakdown. Jingjing Lin’s video projection installation You Can Trust Me: A New Dawn For America introduces, for the first time in history, an AI presidential candidate. Profiles: Portraits of South Bay Creatives, is a series of portraits by Daniel Garcia depicting artists from the South Bay.
On June 20th, LigoranoReese will melt the words “Ars Longa, Vita Brevis,” (Art is Long, Life is Short) outside the ICA during the 40th Anniversary Celebration. Chris Eckert: Art & Life also celebrates the same phrase in a site specific installation in the windows of the ICA.
Prior to the Opening Reception, there will be an Artist Talk and Performance for ICA Members from 1-2PM.
