The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) is an art museum and exhibition space located in Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. The museum was founded as the Boston Museum of Modern Art in 1936 with a mission to exhibit contemporary art. Since then it has gone through multiple name changes as well as moving its galleries and support spaces over 13 times. Its current home was built in 2006 in the South Boston Seaport District and designed by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro. (source)
Formerly located on Boylston Street in the Back Bay neighborhood, the ICA moved to a new facility in the Seaport District area of South Boston. The museum celebrated the completion of its new building the weekend of December 9–10, 2006. The new building coincided with the museum’s launch of its first permanent collection.The new building was designed by the architectural firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro. It is one of that firm’s first structures to be built, and the first to be built in the United States. It is also the first new art museum to be built in Boston in over a century. The building is located between the Courthouse and World Trade Center stations on the MBTA Silver Line. It is adjacent to Anthony’s Pier 4 restaurant. (source)
