The ICA San Francisco Opens After Two Years with a Solo Exhibition by Jeffrey Gibson

Surface, October 18, 2022



“The Bay Area art scene is getting a major boost, thanks to the recent opening of the Institute of Contemporary Art San Francisco, a new museum in the city’s Dogpatch neighborhood that has come together with remarkable speed. The ICA’s director Alison Gass came up with the idea for the new institution in Jan. 2021, when venture capitalist Andy Rappaport, cofounder of Minnesota Street Project, asked her if San Francisco would benefit from a non-collecting art museum. They immediately started fundraising, secured a space, and announced the ambitious project in September. The ICA is opening in phases, starting with a show by Jeffrey Gibson, and welcomed 835 guests on its first day earlier this month.” [H/T Artnet News]
