ICA: Shadow Play Art Lab
Get creative with the ICA in Shadow Play, the Bank of America Art Lab installation by Boston artist Lily Xie. Step into the dark and explore form, transformation, and light through shadow puppets. Who could you be in the shadows? What would you take with you into the darkness?
Shadow puppetry, or shadow play, has roots in several Asian cultures and has spread and shape-shifted into many contemporary forms and practices across the world. Through this diasporic art form, Xie opens the portal for thinking about what is possible when we step into the dark. Dive into an immersive hands-on art-making experience and add your artwork to a growing display of visitor reflections and creations.
