Learn more about our exhibitions. We are thrilled to reopen with three new exhibitions and Tyler Mitchell: I Can Make You Feel Good, all of which address this tumultuous time:

  • #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.  

  • 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 February, 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.

We need your support. Concerned photography is needed now more than ever. When we closed our doors in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had spent just six weeks in our new space at 79 Essex Street. Making a fully tax-deductible donation to ICP ensures that we can continue to sustain our online programs while we welcome visitors back in-person.
