Indianapolis Contemporary (I/C)
Founded in 2001 by arts benefactors and enthusiasts with the mission “to bring contemporary exhibitions and programs to our community to stimulate minds, inspire new discoveries and demonstrate the vital connections between visual culture and life,” the Indianapolis Contemporary (I/C) is Indianapolis’ only museum dedicated solely to contemporary art.
Showcasing innovative exhibitions by emerging and mid-career artists in two locations, I/C strives to present artwork that increases the understanding and appreciation of contemporary visual culture, provoking dialogue and encouraging the discovery that art is all around us. Executive director Paula Katz and director of exhibitions mike Barclay, along with invited guest curators, curate I/C’s exhibitions and programs. Artists are intentionally selected to create a balanced exhibition program, celebrating the diversity of makers of contemporary art and the variety of media this field encompasses.
