The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami announced today that it will be opening its permanent location in the Miami Design District on December 1, 2017. Its first show there will be called “The Everywhere Studio,” and will feature 100 works.
Designed by Aranguren + Gallegos Arquitectos, the Design District space will measure 37,500 square feet, including a 15,000-square-foot sculpture garden. (A gift from Irma and Norman Braman allowed the museum to secure the land rights for the sculpture garden.) The museum will have three floors, two of which will be devoted to temporary special exhibitions. General admission will be free.
“The Everywhere Studio” will focus on artists’ workspaces throughout contemporary art. Featuring work by 40 artists, the show will include work by Martin Kippenberger, Bruce Nauman, Laure Prouvost, and Andy Warhol, among others.
Ellen Salpeter, the director of the ICA Miami, said in a statement that “the new ICA Miami enables us to deepen our relationship with audiences of all ages and backgrounds from throughout South Florida—and, with a rigorous, thought-provoking program and expanded exhibition spaces, it ensures that Miami will continue to be at the forefront of the discussion on contemporary art at the national and international levels.”
