For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here?
In the wake of the 2018 midterm elections, For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here? explores the role of art and visual representation in American civic life through the work of the For Freedoms collective. The exhibition brings together photographs from the Four Freedoms series and billboard designs from the 50 State Initiative, while also serving as an active space where members of the collective can continue to investigate ways of deepening public discourse and political awareness within the US.

Your Mirror: Portraits from the ICP Collection
From nineteenth-century daguerreotypes to twenty-first-century selfies, portraiture has dominated the medium of photography. Drawn from ICP’s collection, this exhibition surveys the nuanced ways people present themselves for the camera, how and by whom they are represented, and who is deemed worthy of commemoration.
