FEB 16, 2019 – MAY 12, 2019

In the inaugural exhibition of the ICA’s annual Dialogues series, artists Irena Haiduk (b. 1982, Belgrade, Yugoslavia) and Martine Syms (b. 1988 Los Angeles, USA) will produce new projects for the ICA, titled respectively Tableaux Économique and Shame Space.

Inspired by the architecture of the ICA’s Markel Center, the Dialogues series pairs two artists to activate the distinctive “V” shape of the second-floor galleries. Each artist will occupy their own space, but the series invites consideration of overlap, resonance, and difference between their practices.
