Errata: Towards the end, I had a lapsus saying "New York, Boston" and "ICA, ICI". The thing is that the ICI is in New York, and I mixed up that with the fact that Heilmann had a large solo show in the early nineties at the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) of Boston, which is considered a very important one in her career.
