In our current image-saturated society — 24-hour news cycles, Instagram, emojis, social media, technology — an understanding of the ways in which pictures are taken, shaped, produced, distributed, remixed, and go viral is vital to an understanding of culture itself.
Join us this fall at the International Center of Photography to hear from imagemakers, experts, artists, academics, critics, and storytellers, responding to both the themes embodied by our current exhibition, GENERATION WEALTH by Lauren Greenfield, and the images that shape contemporary culture and current events today.
Programs include a panel on the architecture of postmodern consumption, an artist talk with Lauren Greenfield, a conversation on wealth inequality, and a special one-night only interactive performance and revival service featuring Reverend Billy and the Stop-Shopping Choir.
Other planned programming includes Reimagining the Image, a monthly photography series highlighting innovative imagemakers and Optics, a new series that examines vision-related technologies and the methods of visual communication that are shaping contemporary society moderated by critic Jillian Steinhauer.
Programs are free, but registration is required. Browse our full list of programs and register today!
