UPCOMING EXHIBITION

A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial
On view May 17—September 8, 2013

Every three years, ICP's curators round up some of the most interesting contemporary photography and video works from around the world. The 2013 Triennial, A Different Kind of Order, focuses on artworks created in our current moment of widespread economic, social, and political instability. The exhibition will include 28 international artists who employ photography, film, video, and interactive media. Many of their works reflect the growing importance of new paradigms associated with digital image making and network culture. A Different Kind of Order is organized by Kristen Lubben, Christopher Phillips, Carol Squiers, and Joanna Lehan.

ALSO ON VIEW

Picture Windows: Gideon Mendel
ICP's Picture Windows is a new series of site-specific installations from a global selection of contemporary artists. In conjunction with the ICP Triennial, a large-scale installation of Gideon Mendel's Drowning World will occupy the museum's 43rd street windows. Drowning World is an ongoing global photography and video project about flooding. Since 2007, Mendel has photographed in the UK, India, Haiti, Pakistan, Australia, Thailand, and Nigeria, focusing on these extreme circumstances as his way of addressing the threat of climate change.

The Company of Colors by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer
Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's interactive installation The Company of Colors features a dozen displays showing real-time camera views of the public constructed out of a variety of color palettes from computer and video-game history. The installation emphasizes the limited range of color rendering possible with computers, including contemporary ones, and the way this limitation shapes styles of representation.

NOT TO MISS

Tim Hetherington's Sleeping Soldiers Installation
On view through May 13 in the School at ICP's pavilion
 
Tim Hetherington, an ICP faculty member and guest artist, photographed the experience of war from the perspective of the individual. His film Restrepo, which he co-directed with Sebastian Junger about a platoon of soldiers in Afghanistan, was awarded the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award in 2011. Through his photographs, writing, and films, he gave us new ways to look at and think about human suffering. On April 20, 2011, while covering the conflict in Libya, Hetherington was killed by Libyan forces in a mortar attack on the besieged city of Misrata.
 
This presentation of Sleeping Soldiers is sponsored by HBO Documentary Films in conjunction with their documentary Which Way is the Front Line from Here? All images courtesy Yossi Milo Gallery, New York.

WE RECOMMEND: FOR THE INTERMEDIATE PHOTOGRAPHER
Here and Now: The Essence of Place with Palmer Davis
Have you ever taken a picture that didn't live up to the image in your mind's eye? If so, this is the class for you. Photographs of places have the power to transport us. But capturing the essence of a given space can be daunting. It requires keen observation, interpretation, and the ability to conjure an atmosphere that wakens our senses and brings a scene to life. Through discussions, readings, shooting assignments, and critiques, students learn to bridge the gap between intention and results. Students produce a portfolio of photographs that evoke the particular worlds we live in and move through at particular moments in time. All formats are welcome.

STUDENTS REFLECT: JHE-MING HSU
One-Year Certificate in General Studies 2013
Photography is a very private thing. Even if we are in the same space, or walk on the same street in the same city, we perceive what's around us in our own private way. By sharing our photos we share this perception with everyone. Very often we reveal more than we expect through the photos. People read them in their own private way, too.

The One-Year Certificate programs are accepting applications on a rolling admissions basis.

ICP MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: SUSAN ROSENBERG JONES
Individual Member since 2002

What first brought you to ICP and why did you decide to become a member?
I had been a fan of ICP for a long time before I became a member. I remember visiting the museum when it was uptown. I can't remember what in particular prompted me to join, but I believe in supporting our arts institutions in general.
 
What has been your favorite ICP moment, class, program, exhibition, or photographer?
I have enjoyed so many exhibits. A couple that come to mind are Elliott Erwitt and Weegee. I try and attend the openings whenever possible, as I usually run into people I know. Then, later I'll revisit the museum to spend more time with the photographs. I've been taking continuing education classes at ICP since 2009. I love the school, and have enjoyed introductions to the work of many photographers through the lecture series. I also love the classes. I have studied with Karen Marshall, Amy Arbus, Martine Fougeron, Natan Dvir, and other excellent teachers. The classes are really great as is the community of the school.

If you could meet a photographer, who would it be?
I've been privileged to meet several contemporary photographers whose work I admire. If I could time travel, I would love to meet Helen Levitt.
 
Do you collect photography? Do you have any notable works in your collection?
I do collect photography and have a few pieces by people such as Ann Woo, Katina Houvouras, Manjari Sharma, and Dina Kantor.
 
Do you take photographs? If so, what type of photographs?
Yes. I love shooting portraits and I work in a social documentary style. Currently I'm working on a project exploring daily life in a high-rise building in Tribeca.

The Member Spotlight is a new opportunity for members to share their most memorable experience at the ICP. If you would like to submit your story, send us an email at membership@icp.org.

STAFF PICK: A PERIOD OF JUVENILE PROSPERITY BY MIKE BRODIE
by Sarah Goldberg, Senior Sales Associate, ICP Store
Untrained photographer Mike Brodie is a much welcomed breath of fresh air in the art world. His long awaited first monograph, A Period of Juvenile Prosperity, was recently released by Twin Palms Press. Brodie started making images in 2004 upon discovering a Polaroid camera in the backseat of a friend's car. With no intentions of being a photographer he took off across the US by train, eventually picking up a 35mm camera to document his transient community and their experiences along the way. The subsequent body work, shot across 50,000 miles of locomotive travel between 2006–2009, was created out of desire, not obligation. It is undoubtedly clear the moments were fully lived before they were photographed. Delivering an authenticity so rare in photography, Brodie's images will stand the test of time. In the way Nan Goldin's Ballad of Sexual Dependency lives on its its unapologetic, brutal honesty in documenting a time and place from the viewpoint of an active participant, Brodie's work delivers a similar dose of grit and realness. With the color palette of an Andrew Wyeth painting and a humble, sensitive eye, Brodie bares his own soul alongside his subjects.
