A former Boston resident who is active in philanthropic causes and current chief executive officer of CLS Group Holdings AG in New York City, David Puth serves on the board of the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in Boston. The oldest contemporary art museum in the United States, the ICA draws upon the leadership of David Puth and his fellow board members to offer a wide range of film, theater, music, dance, and lecture programs.
Among the performances on the ICA’s 2013 calendar is Miriam, a dance production choreographed by Nora Chipaumire. In the production, Chipaumire depicts her journey out of her native country Zimbabwe through hallucinatory, dreamlike imagery that speaks to the struggles of African women against cultural stereotypes.
The ICA also brings critically acclaimed films to audiences, and in 2013 it organized viewings of some of the most heralded short films from 2012, many of which received Academy Award nominations, such as Fresh Guacamole, Head Over Heels, Curfew, Henry, Redemption, Open Heart, and Inocente.
