Founded in 1936, the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) is one of the oldest contemporary art institutions in the United States. The mission of the ICA is to share the pleasures of reflection, inspiration, provocation, and imagination that contemporary art offers through public access to art, artists, and the creative process.
