Every other year, the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) awards its James and Audrey Foster Prize to established, Boston-based artists who are well-known on a national and international level but who have received little recognition in Boston itself. Callie Crossley sat down with ICA curator Dan Byers and two of the artists -- Lucy Kim and Sonia Almeida -- chosen for this year's prize exhibit. Under the Radar also took a field trip to the ICA to take a look at the full exhibit prior to its opening on February 14. The James and Audrey Foster Prize exhibit runs through July 9, 2017.
