SF’s Brand New Art Museum “ICA SF” Opens in Summer 2022
San Francisco is getting a brand new art museum with free admission.
Thanks to Art Forum and Art Net for sharing the news that The Institute of Contemporary Art San Francisco (ICA SF) will open in summer 2022 in the Dogpatch neighborhood.
The 11,000-square-foot museum will be a non-collecting museum and will “prioritize voices and viewpoints that have been ignored or underrepresented in the art world.
Through boundary-expanding curatorial initiatives and collaborations across the arts, ICA SF seeds need-to-know, civically engaged local artists and curators into global consciousness and brings international artists to the Bay Area.
In breaking from the expected museum model, ICA SF pushes against tradition and hierarchies, fundamentally changing how contemporary art is curated, compensated and accessed by all.”
ICA SF’s location and launch are being generously underwritten by the Minnesota Street Project Foundation, along with a cornerstone $1 million seed investment from Minnesota Street Project founders, Andy and Deborah Rappaport, through their Rappaport Family Foundation.
The Institute of Contemporary Art San Francisco will be located at 901 Minnesota Street, San Francisco, California.
We believe museums can do better. As a non-collecting contemporary art museum, we prioritize artists over art holdings, individuals over institutions, and equity and expansion of the canon. Opening 2022. https://t.co/QREOohfcMc
