Topic Tour: Looking at Art

Saturday, Oct 20

1:00 PM–2:00 PM


New to contemporary art? This tour offers some strategies for approaching even the most challenging works. Join ICA Student Guide Michelle Koppl for an in-depth look at Pascale Marthine Tayou’s Colored Stones and Abbas Akhavan’s Study for a Curtain, through the lens of their materials.

Michelle Koppl, originally from Colorado, moved to Virginia to study dance and choreography at VCU. She graduated in May and now spends her time leading tours at the ICA and performing with the RVA Dance Collective. Michelle’s favorite moments at the ICA are when visitors share new observations and interpretations of the artworks.
