In 2015, ICP presented the Spotlights Award to American artist Carrie Mae Weems. Weems incorporates photographs, text, fabric, audio, and video in her work, which tackles themes including families, gender, identity, and politics. Weems was in conversation with Isolde Brielmaier, Director of the Art Initiative at Westfield World Trade Center and an adjunct professor in the Department of Photography and Imaging at New York University.
The luncheon also featured a special acknowledgment to ICP Librarian, Deirdre Donohue.
Support raised through this event benefits ICP education and exhibition programs.
ICP Spotlights featured a silent auction of artwork, studio visits, and other items donated by ICP faculty, alumni, students, and friends.
