In October 2017, The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston will host "Mark Dion: Misadventures of a 21st Century Naturalist", the largest American Survey to date of the artist work.
This symposium takes place in conjunction with Mark Dion’s survey exhibition Misadventures of a 21st-Century Naturalist at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston.
The symposium begins at the New Bedford Whaling Museum, in Mark Dion’s hometown, where the artist will deliver a keynote speech. It continues the next day at the ICA. The Whaling Museum event is organized by Art History Professor Pamela Karimi, in conjunction with the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA/Boston). Other activities related to Mark Dion's show at the ICA involve contributions by Art History Professor Rebecca Uchill.
