The Institute of Contemporary Art Miami is a museum that’s located in beautiful and bright Miami, Florida. It’s in the Miami Design District’s well-known Moore Building. Plans for the construction of the museum were announced in late 2014. The museum’s board of trustees includes Elle Macpherson, Manny Kadre, Jackie Soffer (wsj.com) and Cynthia Fiske. These board members are all seasoned business professionals. Macpherson is a famed supermodel who launched Welleco, a wellness website. Kadre is the Tri-State Luxury Collection’s CEO. Fiske, lastly, is the Miami Cartier shop’s director.
Modern art is the focal point at the Institute of Contemporary Art, just as its name suggests. The objective of this museum is to display the contributions of modern artists. The museum has exhibitions that are devoted to contemporary artists such as Thomas Bayrle, Renaud Jerez, Laura Lima, Alex Bag, Virginia Overton, Ryan Sullivan and Shannon Ebner.
There are quite a few exciting programs available at the Institute of Contemporary Art, too. “ICA Speaks,” for example, is a program that concentrates on sharing ideas and artwork. “ICA Performs” is a program that concentrates on the talents of performance artists. Other programs that are available at the Institute of Contemporary Art include “ICA Ideas” and “ICA Residents.”
Education is yet another big focus for the Institute of Contemporary Art’s team. ICA Seminars are available to people of all age groups. These college-level courses are participatory events that are suitable for people who are deeply passionate about learning. The courses discuss a wide range of pertinent topics including art history from the past several decades and modern art in general.
The Institute of Contemporary Art has also organized a “Young Artists Initiative.” This is an art program that is geared toward high school students who are in ninth, tenth, eleventh or twelfth grades. The program gives young people the chance to collaborate with prominent artists. It gives them the chance to assess modern art techniques. It gives them the chance to work on their individual portfolios as well. The program’s duration is 20 weeks.
