From the KPBS weekend arts preview, Nov. 18, 2021:
Let's give this one the best title award. New York-based artist Marina Zurkow will launch her residency at ICA North (formerly Lux) in Encinitas with a reception on Friday. The exhibition is immersive (artistically speaking, not aquatically) and will transform the gallery space. Zurkow's work is informed by the space between human civilization and ocean, the uneven relationship between the two, and, of course, human impact. Sculptural elements will include actual local marine debris (smell included), and the installation will feature several generative video works that will transform throughout the residency.

Details: Marina Zurkow's residency begins with an opening reception Friday from 6-8 p.m. and will be on view through Jan. 30, 2022. Regular gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. ICA North, 1550 S El Camino Real, Encinitas. $0-10 for the reception, pay what you wish gallery admission.
—Julia Dixon Evans, KPBS.

From the gallery:
The Institute of Contemporary Art, San Diego presents experimental art and learning at its two campuses in Balboa Park and Encinitas.

Launching on November 20, Artist-in-Residence Marina Zurkow invites the community to rethink our connection to the oceans by completely transforming the I-C-A San Diego North Campus gallery in Encinitas into an immersive installation that will activate the senses. Dive into the transformed galleries that emulate an underwater environment.

Free admission through ICA San Diego’s Pay As You Wish initiative.

Hours: Thursday – Sunday from Noon to 5 p.m.
