The Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (ICA LA) announced today two new exhibitions opening next month: The Plant That Heals May Also Poison, the first major United States retrospective of artist Ree Morton in four decades and Ann Greene Kelly in the Elsa Longhauser Project Room, featuring drawing and sculpture in the artist’s first solo institutional presentation.
“ICA LA has a history of illuminating the untold stories and emerging voices in contemporary art and culture, presenting in-depth surveys of important yet under-recognized artists. We’re proud to shine a light on these vital voices through both historical and contemporary exhibitions that feel relevant and essential,” said Anne Ellegood, Executive Director of ICA LA. “The work of Ree Morton and Ann Greene Kelly will be new to many in Los Angeles, and we’re thrilled to introduce their work to a wider audience. With shared interests in subjects such as domesticity and experimentation with materials, this thoughtful pairing of exhibitions for our Spring season reflects ICA LA’s commitment and enthusiasm to support and showcase work that challenges the way we see and experience the world.”
