Founded in 1936, The Institute of Contemporary Art is the oldest non-collecting contemporary arts institution in the United States. Through a comprehensive schedule of exhibits of local, national and international significance, and educational outreach, film series and gallery talks, the museum provides the public access to contemporary art, artists, and the creative process. The Museum strives to share the pleasures of reflection, inspiration, provocation, and imagination that contemporary art offers by providing public access to art.
The ICA's onsite bookstore offers a distinctive range of exhibition catalogs, art criticism, monographs and periodicals as well as a selection of fine objects made by local and international artists and artisans.
