The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami is pleased to present its summer 2016 exhibition program, featuring major solo presentations by Laura Lima, Ida Applebroog, Renaud Jerez, and Susan Te Kahurangi King. ICA Miami’s summer season spotlights the creative output of four artists at vastly different stages in their careers, each of whom innovatively approaches gender, identity, politics and the role of the artist. As ICA Miami looks forward to the opening of its new permanent home next year, the summer program reflects the museum’s continued commitment to providing an international platform for a wide range of contemporary artists with innovative and experimental approaches to their practices.

The season kicks off on June 3 with the opening of “The Inverse” a new site-specific installation by renowned Brazilian artist Laura Lima, which will transform the museum’s atrium gallery through sculptures and performance. In July, three additional solo presentations open concurrently: Ida Applebroog, who has influenced generations of artists, will be represented through historic never-before-seen drawings from the 1970s alongside a selection of recent work; emerging artist Renaud Jerez will create a new site-specific installation for his U.S. solo debut; and Susan Te Kahurangi King’ debut solo museum presentation will be the first comprehensive survey of the work of the self-taught New Zealander.

“These four dynamic summer exhibitions embody the museum’s role in advancing new scholarship on innovative and often under-recognized artists and bringing the most significant contemporary art to the Miami region,” said Ellen Salpeter, director of ICA Miami. “In visiting the museum this summer, audiences will have the opportunity to experience a broad spectrum of the voices influencing contemporary artistic discourse.”

Alex Gartenfeld, deputy director and chief curator, added, “This summer’s exhibition program provides a platform for audiences to experience four of the most compelling artists practicing today—each at a crucial and very different stage of their careers. Taken individually, the exhibitions introduce the creative output of Laura, Susan, and Renaud—all of whom will be making their first U.S. solo museum debuts—and shed new light on the iconic Ida Applebroog. Considered together, their diverse yet complementary practices demonstrate unexpected formal affinities and shared motives.”
