Experience Our Exhibitions
The International Center of Photography (ICP) presents our fall/winter exhibitions, featuring three exhibitions that highlight the work of established and emerging contemporary photographers. On view from September 24, 2021 through January 10, 2022, the exhibitions are: Gillian Laub: Family Matters; Diana Markosian: Santa Barbara; and INWARD: Reflections on Interiority.
Gillian Laub: Family Matters
Funny, poignant, troubled, and challenging, Family Matters is photographer Gillian Laub’s two decade-long documentation of her family’s emotional and political dramas, combining photographs and audio recordings full of telling psychological detail. Her deeply personal and unsettling images document high emotion, unexpected humor, and deep love. As it moves through time, the exhibition becomes a microcosm of a deeply conflicted nation, as the artist and her parents find themselves on opposing sides of a sharp political divide—tearing at multigenerational family ties, and forcing everyone to ask what, in the end, really binds them together. The exhibition is curated by David Campany and coincides with the publication of a companion book by Aperture.
We recommend all visitors listen to the audio story voiced by Gillian Laub while visiting the exhibition, Gillian Laub: Family Matters at ICP. Download Gesso’s app for iPhone or Android and when you arrive in the galleries launch the exhibition experience through the app or a web browser. Bring your headphones to listen as you move throughout the gallery. The story starts at the beginning of ACT I.
Diana Markosian: Santa Barbara
Diana Markosian: Santa Barbara presents the photographer’s compelling autobiographical narrative of her mother’s path from Russia to America with her two children in search of a better life. The exhibition juxtaposes an idealized, Hollywood-like version of the American dream with the often-startling reality of the immigrant experience. Curated by Sara Ickow, Senior Manager of Exhibitions and Collections, and David Campany, Santa Barbara features staged images, film footage, and family photographs that reimagine the past and explore themes of family and memory.
INWARD: Reflections on Interiority
INWARD: Reflections on Interiority features newly commissioned work by five emerging artists—Djeneba Aduayom, Arielle Bobb-Willis, Quil Lemons, Brad Ogbonna, and Isaac West—who experiment with and explore aspects of their interior lives. Their work moves beyond the endless scope of the constructed selfie and documentation of events in the public realm to examine the intimate interactions and thoughts that make up their daily experiences as artists and people in a time of unprecedented change. The exhibition is curated by Isolde Brielmaier, PhD, Curator-at-Large at ICP.
