Discovering Weegee Contest
Here's how it works:
@ICPMuseum posts a question about Weegee or his work. Find the correct answer on our website, reply to @ICPMuseum, and mention #DiscoverWeegee in your response to be eligible for the chance to win!
The winner will be randomly selected among those who tweet the right answer within 24 hours. @ICPMuseum will announce the winner on Twitter and Facebook, and two tickets to the Weegee exhibition will be immediately available at the museum desk. The tickets expire on September 2, 2012.
Weegee (Arthur Fellig) is best known for his tabloid news photographs of urban crowds, crime scenes, and New York City nightlife from 1928 to 1968. The ICP exhibition Weegee: Murder Is My Business examines the intense decade between 1935 and 1946, when Weegee was one of the most relentlessly inventive figures in American photography. His graphically dramatic and often lurid photographs of New York crimes and news events set the standard for what has become known as tabloid journalism. This exhibition draws upon the extensive Weegee Archive at ICP and includes environmental recreations of Weegee's apartment and exhibitions. The exhibition is organized by ICP Chief Curator Brian Wallis.
