ICA Miami Says BRB
The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami is saying goodbye to its home in the Moore Building and will be temporary closed as it gears up to move into its new Aranguren & Gallegos Arquitectos-designed space (rendering above) this December.
In the meantime, the institution will be hosting a number of events to keep its audience engaged throughout the summer and fall. Here are some of the programs that you can attend here in the Miami Design District while the ICA Miami says BRB:
ICA NEXT Meets: VIRGO
June 29, 7pm, OTL, 160 NE 40th St
Join Miami-based multidisciplinary artist VIRGO and experience the debut of Water Planet, an immersive virtual reality first-person adventure set on a distant blue world. The VR experience is based off the the artist's “Ocean Tech” musical style, which synthesizes house, trance and future electronic beats.
This program is open to ICA NEXT level members and above with RSVP.
Art+Research Center Summer Intensive 2017
July 10–27, 4040 NE 2nd Avenue
ICA Miami’s Art+Research Center (A+RC) will host its first Summer Intensive, a two-week program comprising four seminars and various public events from July 10th to July 27th. The Summer Intensive will address ways in which urgent climate issues and worsening anthropogenic effects apply pressure to contemporary cultural production. The seminars will range from surveys of the Everglades’ waterways to questions regarding planetary shifts, running the gamut from very specific discussions related to Miami’s immediate conditions to more abstract probing around what it means to think and produce art on a planet that is changing so rapidly. Among the faculty will be Miccosukee activist Reverend Houston Cypress, Visual Studies pioneer and activist Nicholas Mirzoeff, and theorist Claire Colebrook.
A+RC seminar applications open June 1, 2017. Public lectures are free with required RSVP.

As part of the ICA Speaks series, Miami-based artist Mark Handforth will host a public lecture on his recent work including a new sculpture commissioned for ICA Miami’s new building. Handforth is a renowned artist and sculptor whose work features prominently in the museum's permanent collection.
