To launch the ICA’s annual commission series, Provocations, artist Rashid Johnson was invited to create a new, large-scale work that responded to the soaring, light-filled expanse of the ICA’s top-floor exhibition space. This project was also heavily programmed with weekly performances and engagements from community members.
The Provocations series takes its name from Steven Holl’s design intention for the ICA’s top-floor gallery space, which he calls “a provocation for artists to engage.”
Monument by Rashid Johnson ran from October 17, 2018 - July 14, 2019.
