ICA’s Curator-Led Tours offer an unique opportunity to learn about our current exhibitions from the curators in an intimate setting. For this program, Meg Onli, Andrea B. Laporte Associate Curator, Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, and Erin Christovale, Associate Curator, Hammer Museum will cover the overarching themes and broader concepts of Ulysses Jenkins: Without Your Interpretation, highlighting key aspects of the artist’s practice and providing insight into their curatorial process. ASL interpretation will be provided for this program by Hands-UP Productions.


Major support for Ulysses Jenkins: Without Your Interpretation has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, with additional sup­port from Pamela J. Joyner and Alfred J. Giuffrida, and Lyndon J. Barrois and Janine Sherman Barrois. Support for curato­rial research has been provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. The republication of Ulysses Jenkins’s Doggerel Life: Stories of a Los Angeles Griot is made possible with support from the J. Paul Getty Trust.

Programming at ICA has been made possible in part by the Emily and Jerry Spiegel Fund to Support Contemporary Culture and Visual Arts and the Lise Spiegel Wilks and Jeffrey Wilks Family Foundation, and by Hilarie L. & Mitchell Morgan.
