Engage with ICP from Anywhere
Although the International Center of Photography is temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we remain a vibrant virtual community dedicated to offering an open forum for dialogue about the power of the image. Below are different ways to stay connected with our exhibition and education programs.
For updates on online events, upcoming classes, and more in your inbox, join our mailing list at icp.org/subscribe. Continue the conversation with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Listen to image-inspired playlists on Spotify.
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.
