Picture Windows: Gideon Mendel

MAY 17–FEBRUARY 19, 2014

ICP's Picture Windows is a new series of site-specific installations from a global selection of contemporary artists. In conjunction with the A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial, a large-scale installation of Gideon Mendel's Drowning World occupies the museum's 43rd street windows.

Drowning World is an ongoing global photography and video project about flooding. Since 2007, Mendel has photographed in the UK, India, Haiti, Pakistan, Australia, Thailand, and Nigeria, focusing on these extreme circumstances as his way of addressing the threat of climate change.
