“The Treasure House of Memory,” an exhibition by Raúl de Nieves at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston

Mexican born artist, performer and musician, Raúl de Nieves, brings his joyful bead sculptures to the ICA for his latest solo exhibition, “The Treasure House of Memory.” De Nieves’ works reference traditional costumes in Mexican culture and modes of dress from drag, ballroom, and queer club cultures, while also evoking religious processional attire and the outfits worn by circus performers.

On view now until 24 July 2022 at ICA Boston
25 Harbor Shore Drive 02210
