The Portrait in Contemporary Photography
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 6pm–9pm
While the portrait is–on the surface–the central theme of the exhibition, it has been curated with a view to showing artworks that are highly mediated by the photographer, and demonstrate how a human subject is utilized, in putting forward a point of view about a larger concept.

Sebastião Salgado: Genesis
SEPTEMBER 19–JANUARY 11, 2015
Genesis is the third long-term series on global issues by world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado (born Brazil, 1944), following Workers (1993) and Migrations (2000). The result of an eight-year worldwide survey, the exhibition draws together more than 200 spectacular black-and-white photographs of wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, and indigenous peoples—raising public awareness about the pressing issues of environment and climate change. ICP is proud to be the first U.S. venue of this momentous exhibition, which is curated by Lélia Wanick Salgado.

Bill Armstrong: Infinity, Photographs
September 18-November 28, 2014
Infinity, a mid-career retrospective of Armstrong’s work, will include images from his ongoing Infinity series, an extensive body of work he has been photographing since the late 1990’s. On view will be more than 35 images from the portfolios Film Noir, Buddha, Mandala, Renaissance, and Renaissance Portraits. His unique process, photographing hand-made collages of found images out of focus with his lens set on the infinity setting, creates shimmering, vibrating images. This technique of extreme blurring dematerializes the figures and transforms them from the earthly to the ephemeral.

Gérard Musy : Kaléidoscope
Gérard Musy’s series Kaleidoscope represents a multiple and dynamic concept, visible during the day and also at night. In this temporary space of the Marais, Kaleidoscope will be shown in different ways: first, a slideshow projected on the gallery’s window, also on the walls where you will be able to see the prints and in a portfolio which will gather all the photographs of the series. The music of Eric Satie and John Cage, tunes taken from music boxes and musicals will accompany the visitor into this immersive and vibrant vision.
