On Sept. 22, the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston opens a new exhibition featuring work by the 2010 finalists for the James and Audrey Foster Prize. The ICA’s Foster Prize is a biennial award show that recognizes and celebrates artists who live and work in Greater Boston.

Presented in a newly expanded format, this year’s exhibition includes work by nine finalists: Robert de Saint Phalle, Eirik Johnson, Fred Liang, Rebecca Meyers, Matthew Rich, Daniela Rivera, Evelyn Rydz, Amie Siegel and Steve Tourlentes. From large-scale photographs of the Peruvian Amazon to experimental film to installations inspired by 17th-century frescoes, these artists offer a wide-ranging view of the art being created in the Boston area today. The 2010 James and Audrey Foster Prize exhibition runs through Jan. 17, 2011. The winner of the prize will be announced in early January 2011.
