Since 2001, the International Center of Photography’s Teen Academy program has supported thousands of New York City youth in using cameras as tools to tell their own stories and shine a light on local social justice issues.
For this installation of Projected, students will curate a selection of images, surrounding a theme of their choosing, showcasing work made in our Teen Academy’s spring black-and-white and color darkroom photography courses. This youth-led series is intended to position our next generation as cultural producers and highlight the work of local teens in a museum setting.
How to View Work by ICP’s Teen Academy
During the day, work by ICP’s Teen Academy can be viewed on monitors inside the ICP Museum and during evening hours, images are literally “projected” onto the windows of the ICP Museum; they can be viewed from the sidewalk outside the Museum and are most visible after sunset.
