ICA at VCU is committed to the health and safety of our staff and community, and we want to ensure that people feel safe and welcome when our building reopens. We are currently reviewing various scenarios and considerations for the ICA’s re-opening, taking into account the current Virginia Stay at Home order, as well as health and safety guidance from the University and state and local officials. We look forward to welcoming our community back to the ICA at VCU, and will announce a re-opening timeline as soon as we, in collaboration with VCU, have determined that we can re-open responsibly and with the proper measures in place. For the most up-to-date information and VCU’s wider response to the situation, please visit VCU's COVID-19 website.

First Friday: Benae Beamon

Friday, Dec 6

7:00 PM–9:00 PM

On First Friday, Benae Beamon presents a tap performance titled Time Blackened for the Capture of Dawn, commissioned by the ICA as part of Great Force. As a tap dancer and performance artist from North Carolina, her work deals with questions of historical archiving, ritual, power, and black existence, by drawing from traditional movements in black culture. Tap dance forms the basis for a rhythmic lexicon inspired by hip hop, jazz, spoken word, and West and South African movement. Join us for a free performance in the ICA’s Royall Forum accompanied by live musicians. With refreshments and cash bar.
