The spring program of Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami (ICA Miami) includes a presentation of the large-scale sculpture Untitled (1968/2019) by Robert Grosvenor, the 2020 recipient of the Ezratti Family Prize for Sculpture. Upon its installation at ICA Miami in 2019, the seminal work, which marks a crucial transformation in the artist’s work, had not been restaged for 40 years. Set to be reinstalled at ICA Miami this spring, the work was recently acquired by ICA Miami thanks to the Prize. The Ezratti Family Prize for Sculpture is awarded by ICA Miami to a living artist in recognition of their exceptional contributions in the area of sculpture. The inaugural winner, Damián Ortega, was awarded the prize upon its launch in 2019. Building on the museum’s history of commissioning and presenting new works, the prize reflects ICA Miami’s ongoing commitment to promoting experimentation in artistic practice and providing an international platform for influential voices in contemporary art.
“ICA Miami’s spring program showcases artists whose works advance important and inclusive narratives of contemporary art. Through these exhibitions, we invite audiences to engage with thrilling new works, grapple with some of the most pressing matters of our time, and consider how contemporary art challenges and responds to our current world,” said ICA Miami Artistic Director Alex Gartenfeld . “This spring, we also celebrate the pioneering artist Robert Grosvenor as the recipient of the annual Ezratti Family Prize for Sculpture. Grosvenor’s contributions to sculpture and influence on his generation merit greater recognition, and we are pleased to collect and preserve an important and monumental work by the artist.”
