About Institute of Contemporary Art Philadelphia
The Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania believes in the power of art and artists to inform and inspire. The ICA is free for all to engage and connect with the art of our time. The museum presented Andy Warhol's first solo exhibition in 1965 as well as significant shows of Agnes Martin, Robert Mapplethorpe, Glenn Ligon, Richard Artschwager, Karen Kilimnik, Lisa Yuskavage, and many others.
In The New York Times, critic Roberta Smith observed, "On a surprisingly regular basis, the tiny Institute of Contemporary Art...mounts exhibitions that make the contemporary art adventures of many larger museums look blinkered, timid, and hidebound."
