Participate in ICP’s Community Open Call
In these times of quarantine and social distancing, photographs can inform, inspire, and offer much needed respite. As a community of artists, educators, and supporters of photography and imagemaking, we would love to see the work you are creating right now. Share your images and stories with ICP by using #ICPConcerned on Instagram and we’ll share select images on @ICP. Learn more about our open call.
Learn about our exhibition #ICPConcerned: Global Images for Global Crisis, which draws from images submitted to the hashtag.
Experience Our Exhibitions
- #ICPConcerned: Global Images for Global Crisis
- With contributions from over sixty countries, this evolving exhibition draws from the tens of thousands of images being posted with the hashtag launched by ICP in March, inviting our global community to make and share images of their experiences. From COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter to the California fires and demonstrations against authoritarian regimes, #ICPConcerned will present 1000 images of our time, wrapping around ICP’s largest gallery space.
- View the #ICPConcerned: Global Images for Global Crisis exhibition website, which will grow alongside the exhibition and eventually include the 1000 images in the show.
- Hear directly from a selection of contributing photographers to learn more about the stories behind their images in an audio guide, which will continue to expand alongside the physical exhibition.
- COVID New York: Five ICP Alumni
- In April, five imagemakers, all alumni of ICP’s One-Year Certificate Programs, were commissioned to photograph here in New York for a month. With the pandemic at its height, all took on the challenge in their own way.
- George Georgiou: Americans Parade
- As the United States approaches an election, we present Georgiou’s group portraits taken at street parades across the country. Made just four years ago, in the run-up to the 2016 election, these photographs take on a deeper resonance for our present moment.
- Tyler Mitchell: I Can Make You Feel Good
- In January, Mitchell presented his first US solo exhibition at ICP as a declaration of joy and presence, and an imagining of Black utopias. In these times of renewed struggle for racial justice, ICP is honored to extend this exhibition and invite our audiences to re-view the significance and potency of his work.
- Listen as Tyler Mitchell and ICP Curator at Large Isolde Brielmaier discuss cooking, Black joy, and more in an exhibition introduction, then check out this playlist curated by Mitchell for I Can Make You Feel Good.
