With every call for social change arrives the possibility to make the world anew. The Worlds We Make: Selections from the ICA Collection explores how artists have visualized beyond present reality to imagine dream and realize the world-otherwise. Drawn from the ICA’s permanent collection and Boston-area collections these works consider world-making in relation to broader themes such as climate and the natural environment historical narratives and speculative fictions the supernatural and the planetary. Expansive in subject and medium the exhibition includes works by artists such as Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons Njideka Akunyili Crosby Jeffrey Gibson Lorraine O’Grady Matthew Ritchie and Yinka Shonibare CBE (RA) among others.
