Longtime friends and first-time collaborators Alex Da Corte and Jayson Musson created a major new commission for ICA in 2014. Nearly two and a half hours in length, this in-the-round video installation was scripted by Jayson Musson, directed by Alex Da Corte, and with a score by composer Devonté Hynes. Easternsports is amorality tale for the digital age. Both deadly serious and heartbreakingly flippant, it embraces Gap commercials and grand jury rulings, middle-class aspirations and global imperialism. And it transforms a decade-long conversation between Musson and Da Corte into a work awash in the neon glow of their American milieu. This expansive catalogue includes an essay by ICA curator Kate Kraczon.
