ICP Announces an Ambitious Program on Climate Change

Posted By Blog User, Friday, September 19, 2014

ICP TALKS:  Climate Change


As the world heats up so does the dialogue, and this fall the ICP makes a stand on climate change with an impressive series ICP TALKS.  Programming will include exhibitions, panel discussions, lectures, and screenings related to climate change.  The ICP opened their fall season with an exhibition of work by Sebastião Salgado, Genesis.   In Genesis Salgado brings us images of Arctic circles, lush rainforests, barren deserts, as well as images of flora, fauna, and communities living in harmony with nature.  All of his works represent untouched landscapes.  These images are primordial and serene, but steadily disappearing.  The work is double-edged, for while Salgado's frames offer us rays of hope that virgin places yet exist, we know much of the natural world has been so imposed on by mankind that it is unrecognizable.  These fragile places must be protected while there is still time.


ICP TALKS runs parallel with Climate Week NYC and with the UN Climate Summit happening this September; related programing for ICP Talks: Climate Change will continue through mid-December.  Note repeating events, including Green Mondays- lectures in the galleries with scientists, activists, and photographers, as well as Friday-evening gallery walk-throughs with climate scientists who will offer regional context to Salgado's images.  The scope and stand of this initiative is not only poignant, it promises to be truly significant.

Exhibition: Urbes Mutantes at the International Center of Photography

Urbes Mutantes:  Latin American Photography
1949 - 2013

Through September 7, 2014

This major survey of Latin American photographic work draws on movements in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela.  The exhibition, which covers seven decades, but keys-in particularly on the 1950's - 1980's, takes the dynamic and often chaotic Latin American city as its focus.  The core period, 1950's - 1980's, holds potency, as major social and political upheaval occurred at the time.  On the whole the images ask for a revision of how the continent's cities have been imagined and underline the co-mingling of art and politics in Latin American society.  The exhibition is organized into sections that explore the use of the street as platform for protest, formation of urban identities, popular street culture, and the face of poverty. Street photography as a genre in Latin America became particularly important as the public way, the street, became the setting for uprisings and revolutions, so in certain instances, as exhibition Curator Alexis Fabry points out, "politics and art were inseparable."  In an effort to avoid petty distinctions between photography's nuanced genres Urbes Mutantes (Mutant Cities) takes the whole of photographic history into consideration and highlights the depth, richness, and diversity of the photographic history of Latin America.  The exhibition includes over 200 images drawn from the private collection of Leticia and Stanislas Poniatowski.
