Institute of Contemporary Art at University of Pennsylvania (ICA)

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. For over fifty years, ICA has served as a laboratory for the new, introducing urgent and important contemporary art to the city while providing exhibition opportunities for area artists. A non-collecting museum, ICA is one of the few “kunsthalles” in America, giving us the freedom to look where artists look and respond quickly to what we find. As part of the University of Pennsylvania, our artist-centric program is complemented by the intellectual rigor of a premier academic institution.
