Solange Knowles spins at weekend ICA gala

Parties at the Institute of Contemporary Art are rarely stuffy affairs, and this weekend’s fund-raising gala was no exception. There were performances by Nick Cave — the artist famous for his wearable fabric sculptures, not the Australian singer — the omnipresent Amanda Palmer, and a late-night DJ set by Solange Knowles, Beyoncé’s big sister. The well-coiffed crowd included ICA director Jill Medvedow, dancer/choreographer Karole Armitage, ICA trustees Charles Brizius and Paul Buttenwieser, artist Mark Cooper, Boston Foundation’s Paul Grogan, Paul Ha of the MIT List Visual Arts Center, Louis Boston owner Debi Greenberg, the Boston Harbor Association’s Vivien Li, the BRA’s Kairos Shen, Priscilla Rojas of State Street, and stylist Mario Russo.
