Zane sculpture broken at ICA

Joe Zane’s sculpture “Tulip Head” (pictured at left), which was on view in the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art’s Foster Prize exhibit, was broken there on Nov. 13 due to “an unfortunate accident in the gallery,” according to a spokeswoman for the museum. The sculpture, a glass vase (its silhouette is based on the Cambridge conceptual artist’s profile) filled with glass flowers, had been anchored atop a pedestal in the middle of a gallery. The museum reports that Zane “created a new original piece,” which has been on view since Nov. 28.
