Gordon Parks: 100 Years

MAY 18–MAY 5, 2013

To commemorate the centennial of the birth of photographer, filmmaker, musician, and writer Gordon Parks (1912–2006), ICP in conjunction with The Gordon Parks Foundation presents Gordon Parks: 100 Years, a window installation at ICP encompassing a large-scale photo mural and slideshow of more than 50 photographs he captured throughout his long, illustrious career.

The 20-foot-by-13-foot photo mural features Emerging Man, one of Parks' iconic images captured in Harlem in 1952. Three video screens will display his stunning images, which explore such issues as urban and rural poverty, racism and prejudice, politics, and the historic Civil Rights Movement.
