Dialogues: Irena Haiduk + Martine Syms

  • Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU 601 West Broad Street Richmond, VA, 23220 (map)

In the inaugural exhibition of the ICA’s annual Dialogues series, artists Irena Haiduk (b. 1982, Belgrade, Yugoslavia) and Martine Syms (b. 1988 Los Angeles, USA) will produce new projects for the ICA, titled respectively Tableau Économique and Shame Space. These projects extend Haiduk’s and Syms’ investment in economy and entrepreneurship through ICA-commissioned installations that invite active participation from audience members. Inspired by the architecture of the ICA’s Markel Center, the Dialogues series pairs two artists to activate the distinctive “V” shape of the second-floor galleries. Each artist will occupy their own space, but the series invites participants to consider overlap, resonance, and difference between their practices.
