DESCRIPTION

Nine Boston-area artists have been selected for the ICA's biennial award and exhibition program

From large-scale photographs of the Peruvian Amazon to experimental film to installations inspired by 17th-century frescoes, the artists selected for the 2010 Foster Prize offer a wide-ranging view of the art being created in the Boston area today. Showcasing and celebrating work in our own community has been an integral aspect of the ICA’s exhibition program since the prize’s inception in 1999.

This year, the biennial award show takes a new, expanded format, featuring work by nine artists. The exhibition, including sculpture, installation, film, video, painting, drawing and photography, culminates in the selection of the Foster Prize recipient in January 2011.
