This solo exhibition of film, video, and sculpture by filmmaker and artist Cauleen Smith (b. 1967) will fill the ICA’s Beverly W. Reynolds Gallery and reach into the adjacent Royall Forum with an overlapping series of immersive installations. Taking its title from a revision of the threat “take it or leave it,” Give It or Leave It cultivates a spirit of generosity, hospitality, and selflessness, and proposes a new rule for a better world: creating something, offering it, and gifting it, regardless of recognition, acceptance, or rejection.
