Here’s what we expect to hear about next week: The ICA opens its new round of always-strong programming; Charles Ray debuts ginormous sculpture; prominent Russian artists/political activists get a double-whammy; and BAM debuts a look back at famed horror film director John Carpenter’s musical career.
