BADA @ the ICA, October 2012:

The Boston Art Dealers Association is pleased to present New Voices / New Vision, at the Institute of Contemporary Art / Boston. This will be the first in a series of panel discussions dealing with the issues relevant to the greater Boston art community. Since its inception in 1989 BADA has worked to create a vital and viable art community by engaging the various members of that community: including artists, collectors, critics, curators, gallerists, students, and the many people who attend museum and gallery exhibitions.

This first panel is made up of museum professionals new to Boston. The five panelists are Dina Deitsch, Curator of Contemporary Art, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum; Lisa Fischman, Director, Davis Museum, Wellesley College; Paul C. Ha, Diretor, MIT List Visual Arts Center; Janelle Porter, Senior Curator, ICA Boston and Trevor Smith, Curator of Contemporary Art, Peabody Essex Museum. The panel will be moderated by Joanna Fink, President of BADA.

We look forward to hearing their plans for the future and their views about the current Boston art scene. Please join us at the ICA Boston on October 28 at 2pm.

The panel is free with museum admission. For more information, call 617-536-4465.
