Visitors can get three for the price of none on September 10 at the Institute of Contemporary Art’s Fall Opening Reception for three new exhibits.
“Dance with Camera,” on display through March 21, is an exhibition (pictured) and screening program that explores a crossover between artists and dancers who make choreography for the camera. Spanning 70 years of art and film, it features works in film, video, and still photography that exemplify the ways dance has compelled visual artists to record bodies moving in time and space.
“Tim Rollins and K.O.S: A History,” on display through December 6, is the first major museum retrospective of work by artist, activist and teacher, Tim Rollins, and K.O.S. (Kids of Survival), a group of artists originally made up of Rollins’ students from the South Bronx. Rollins and his students are known for their large, minimalist works of art on the pages of books cut out and placed in a grid on canvas.
“Video Art: Replay” is a yearlong, three-part exhibition offering a snapshot of current video art. “Part I: Asking Not Telling,” on display through December 6, presents videos by artists who use the tropes of documentary filmmaking to capture, record, rerecord and represent cultural memory.
The event takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. For more information, call 215-898-7108 or visit www.icaphila.org.
