Speech/Acts, a group exhibition featuring new and recent works by artists Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Steffani Jemison, Tony Lewis, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Martine Syms, explores experimental black poetry and how the social and cultural constructs of language have shaped black American experiences. The exhibition will also feature prose and poetry by Morgan Parker and Simone White, as well as a satellite outpost for The Racial Imaginary Institute, founded by poet Claudia Rankine. Speech/Acts is organized by Assistant Curator Meg Onli. See more at icaphila.org/exhibitions/8696/speech-acts.

Nathalie Du Pasquier, BIG OBJECTS NOT ALWAYS SILENT is co-curated by Alex Klein, the Dorothy and Stephen R. Weber (CHE'60) Curator at ICA; and Luca Lo Pinto, curator at Kunsthalle Wien in Austria, where the first iteration of the retrospective was initially conceived and presented by Lo Pinto last fall. Featuring more than 100 works spanning from the early 1980s to the present, the exhibition explores the prolific creative practice of artist and designer Nathalie Du Pasquier, a founding member of the Italian design collective Memphis, across various mediums and methods.
