Join the International Center of Photography (New York, NY) online from March 29 to April 2 as photographers and industry leaders examine how the events of 2020 are shaping the future of imagemaking. ICP’s weeklong event series The Rules are Broken: A Year in Imagemaking, focuses on the COVID-19 pandemic, photography and social movements, the reckoning of a year lived through screens, the role of photobooks and place-making, and how the last year has transformed our lives and the industry.
The Rules are Broken features a keynote lecture by artist and curator Deborah Willis (MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellow; New York University) on her new book, The Black Civil War Soldier: Visual History of Conflict and Citizenship, on Friday, April 2 at 1pm (EDT). Willis will speak to the importance of images in (re)telling stories of resilience and collective struggle and how remembrance can inform our present positions, encouraging us to write new ways to envision fresh utopias for the future of photography.
On Monday, March 29, at 6pm (EDT), photographers Rania Matar, Philip Montgomery, Haruka Sakaguchi, and Black Shutter Podcast founder and photographer Idris Talib Solomon will share recent projects made during and in response to the global pandemic in “Imagemaking and a Global Pandemic,” moderated by Open Society Foundation’s Yukiko Yamagata.
Additional panels include “2020 in the Mirror of Fashion” with fashion icon Tory Burch, photographer Tina Barney, and photographer and Blanc Magazine Editor in Chief Teneshia Carr, as well as “Show the Way: Imagemaking and Social Media” and “ICP Teen Talk — Next Generation Storytellers Impacting Change.” Photographers speaking throughout the week include Esther Horvath, Tasneem Alsultan, Gregory Halpern, and Ying Ang, among others.
Weeklong access is free for ICP members, $12 for ICP alumni, and $16 for the public. See the full schedule and get tickets at icp.org/rulesarebroken.
