Upcoming at the ICA are a couple of juicy looking events in their Whenever Wednesday series.

Puppetry live

Puppet performances curated by Beth Nixon are on the bill for next Wednesday, March 19, providing a mix of puppet-historical information as well as some juicy examples of puppetry genres you may not know. Of course, Philly’s own Spiral Q is part of the mix!

Plus a talk

Sculptor Anne Chu, whose life-size sculptures in wood or papier-mâché evoke ritual, storytelling, and mythology, will be speaking March 26 at the ICA. Roberta Smith has called her “one of the best figurative sculptors around.” She has some work in
The Puppet Show (still up until March 30–catch it if you haven’t yet), and her work was scooped up by the Carnegie Museum after its last Carnegie International. If you don’t know her, it’s time to get acquainted, especially since she seems to be influencing younger work!

For more talks coming up, here’s a post we ran recently that’s still chock full of things that haven’t happened yet.
