For each installation in the Jim and Kim Pallotta Gallery, works from the ICA collection are brought into conversation with borrowed pieces to explore particular themes and modes of art making. In October 2014, we updated the selection on view to include recently acquired works by Gilbert and George, Leslie Hewitt, and Yasumasa Morimura. These appear alongside collection works by artists including Paul Chan, Rineke Dijkstra, and Boris Mikhailov in an exploration of two focal points: artistic engagement with social and political issues that lend to a contemporary reading of the effects of war and the reimagination of painting through serialization of form, the transformation of genres such as landscape, and the expansion of the medium to encompass drawing, photography, sculpture, and video.
