A popular topic of discussion among EMPs is out of town museum experiences. Museum professionals seem to enjoy visiting museums in other parts of the world and dissecting their experience. It seemed logical that, as we traverse the globe, we share our museum experiences with you. Each addition to our Postcard Portfolio will provide a brief snapshot of our exhibit as we see the world one museum at a time.
The Museum: Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, MA
The Visit: Thursday, September 25, 2014
The Best Thing: The Visitors by Ragnar Kjartansson, a hauntingly beautiful performance piece shown on 9 video screens throughout a darkened gallery.
The Worst Thing: The gallery size. The museum, while stunning, is very small and has a limited amount of gallery space.
Why You Should Go: Beautiful artwork in a very unique building with fantastic views, free to visit on Thursday evenings between 5 and 9PM.
