Sides of Me: Exploring Connections is an exhibition of works created by participants from various ICA teen programs. The works in this exhibition explore connections between the self and individuals, pets, culture, traditions, heritage, and art itself. These connections also relate to the artists’ struggles with feeling ungrounded in light of recent events such as the pandemic and political unrest, and the effects they’ve had on mental health. 

This exhibition was organized by the ICA’s Teen Exhibitions Program, a group of creative teens that work together to plan, organize, and install artwork in the ICA Teen Gallery.  Sides of Me: Exploring Connections  is on view in the Teen Gallery at the ICA's Seaport Studio through December 1, 2022.
