Perspectives 2010 is the inaugural installment of a new annual series focusing on significant recent works by contemporary artists, photographers, and filmmakers. These five artists are concerned not only with the photographic medium, whether it is the formal qualities of photography in transition or the newly defined digital features of the photographic print. They also focus on the subjects of photography, and its means of defining and describing critical social, political, or even philosophical issues. Organized by Brian Wallis, ICP Deputy Director for Exhibitions & Chief Curator, the Perspectives series continues ICP's ongoing exploration of the most exciting projects by emerging and less familiar photographers initiated in its award-winning Triennial exhibitions.
This exhibition was organized by the International Center of Photography with lead support from the ICP Exhibitions Committee and Studley. Additional support was provided, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
