This July, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami (ICA Miami) convenes the third annual Art + Research Center (A+RC) Summer Intensive, which addresses the ways in which urgent climate issues and anthropogenic effects apply pressure to contemporary cultural production. The 2019 semester runs July 8 through 18, and continues ICA Miami’s rigorous education and public programming through the Summer.
Developed by ICA Miami’s Curator of Programs, Gean Moreno, the Art + Research Center is the first museum-based research department in South Florida focused on theoretical inquiry. A+RC’s field-advancing curricula includes application-based graduate-level seminars and workshops, as well as free lectures and programs offered to the general public with a focus on fostering the next generation of socially-minded cultural producers in Miami and beyond.
The Art + Research Center 2019 Summer Intensive encompasses three seminars ranging from very specific discussions related to Miami’s immediate conditions to more abstract probing around what it means to think and produce art on a planet that is rapidly changing. Summer Intensive visiting faculty include theorists and cultural producers from around the country and Miami. Each seminar culminates in a free public lecture led by the visiting faculty.
