  • ICA Watershed 2021 – The ICA Watershed opens for the 2021 season with a monumental commission by acclaimed artist Firelei Báez on July 3. In her largest installation to date, Báez reimagines the Watershed’s gallery space as the site of an ancient ruin, as though the sea had receded from the floor to reveal the archeology of human history in the Caribbean. An art project by artist Stephen Hamilton exploring traditional uses of indigo will occupy the Harbor Room.
