The International Center of Photography (ICP) has opened its doors to the exhibition Face to Face: Portraits of Artists by Tacita Dean, Brigitte Lacombe and Catherine Opie. Organized by renowned writer and curator Helen Molesworth, the exhibition presents portraits of luminaries in the arts by three of the most prominent portraitists of our time. Face to Face will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue published by ICP and MACK, London, with essays by Molesworth and writer and curator Jarrett Earnest. ‘Face to Face’ has been extended through May 7th.
The International Center of Photography (ICP) opened its doors to the exhibition Close Enough: New Perspectives from 12 Women Photographers of Magnum, which offers unique viewpoints on the extraordinary relationships that photographers forge with global situations, communities, and individual subjects. As part of the exhibition, each of the contributing photographers openly reflects upon their intentions and practices, creating a timely chorus of creative voices responding to enduring and urgent human experiences. On view through January 9, 2023, Close Enough takes its title from Magnum photos co-founder Robert Capa’s well-known quote “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”
The International Center of Photography (ICP) will partner with MTA Arts & Design to present site-specific artwork by artist Paul Pfeiffer in the cultural corridor of Grand Central Madison, a new 700,000-square-foot Long Island Rail Road terminal below Grand Central along Madison Avenue between 43rd and 48th Streets in Manhattan, due to open in December 2022. Pfeiffer’s work, Still Life, pays homage to the iconic New York City street performer “Da Gold Man” with large-scale photographs installed in double-sided light boxes. It will be the first in a series of site-specific contemporary photography exhibitions by ICP to be featured in the south concourse of the new Grand Central Madison terminal.
A dear woman, a friend, recently passed away. In her 90s, she was an inspiration to all who knew her ~ looking quite dapper, out doing errands every day, no matter the weather, and with a memory rivaling all those still in mid-life. It was at her 49 Day Funeral Ceremony at The New York Buddhist Church, that we learned how, in the 1940s, she and her husband fled to New York, to avoid being sent to internment camps, along with so many other Japanese-Americans ~ even though they were in the United States Quite legally.
