The Artist’s Museum at the ICA

The Artist’s Museum begins with an impulse to collect and connect, bringing together large-scale installations, photography, film, and videos that employ artworks from the past as material in the present, animating existing artworks, images, and histories to reveal art’s unexpected relationships and affinities. Each of the artists in The Artist’s Museum reimagines the lives of artworks and charts recurring forms and themes across cultures and history. They tweak the language of museum display and organization to engage a variety of disciplines and subjects, from dance, music, and design to gender, sexuality, and technology.

Pierre Leguillon accompanies a collection of artworks and photographs of dancers with a lightshow and soundtrack by Amy Winehouse in La Grande Evasion (The great escape), 2012.

Pierre Leguillon, born in Nogent-sur-Marne, France, in 1969, is an artist who has developed projects as a curator and critic since the beginning of the 1990s. His works, performances, and projections have been the subject of many monographic presentations, notably at Raven Row (London, 2011), Mamco (Geneva, Switzerland, 2010), Moderna Museet (Malmö, Sweden, 2010), the Musée du Louvre (Paris, 2009), and Artists Space (New York, 2009).

Japanese House

Families can explore every corner of this fully-equipped Japanese house reconstructed in Boston by Japanese carpenters. Japanese family life, customs, ceremonies, art, architecture and seasonal events are all highlighted in the fully functional 100-year-old house inside the Museum.

This House was a gift to the City of Boston from the City of Kyoto on the 20th Anniversary of their sister city relationship in 1979. It was brought to the United States piece by piece and rebuilt at Boston Children’s Museum, where it still stands today. Very few of these houses still exist even in Japan, so come explore this rare and very special landmark.

When: Ongoing
Location: Boston Children’s Museum, 308 Congress St Boston, MA 02210
