Major Surveys Of Judy Chicago And Larry Bell To Open At ICA Miami This Fall

This fall, The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami (ICA Miami) will present two major solo career-spanning surveys of Judy Chicago and Larry Bell, highlighting the range and depth of each artist's practice beyond the artistic movements they are each associated with. Featuring iconic installations as well as rarely seen bodies of work, these exhibitions culminate ICA Miami's 2018 season in its new home.

Additional information on each exhibition follows below:

  • Judy Chicago: A Reckoning (Opening December 1, 2018): Presented in conjunction with Art Basel Miami Beach, this periodic survey connects six important bodies of work produced by the artist between the 1960s and 1990s, including historic and lesser-known pieces shown for the first time in decades. Highlighting Chicago's transition from abstraction to figuration, the exhibition traces the artist's ongoing experimentation with collaborative and formal techniques spanning auto-body painting, porcelain and needlework. Drawing from the artist's iconic performance works from the sixties, Chicago will also create a new, site-specific smoke piece for the museum's sculpture garden.

  • Larry Bell: Time Machines (Opening November 1, 2018): Marking the most comprehensive museum survey of the artist's work in nearly 40 years, the exhibition focuses on Bell's process and materials bringing together a range of works from 1959-2008, including sculpture, painting, furniture design, works on paper, and installations. Exhibition highlights include: Hydrolux (1986), a sculpture that uses light, water, and projections to skew dimensionality and perception; and The Cat (1981), a rarely exhibited work that is emblematic of the artist's handling of minimalism and design later in his career. Grounding these works will be a series of Bell's iconic glass cube installations from the sixties.

Also on view during this time, ICA Miami's program will feature focused, monographic presentations in its first-floor galleries by Louise Bourgeois, William Copley, and emerging artist Manuel Solano, and a newly commissioned sculpture by Henry Taylor for the museum's sculpture garden.
