Global Imagery in a Digitized World Discussed at ICP/Tisch Panel

July 8, 2013

The question of what photography's place is in a rapidly shifting media terrain will be explored at a panel discussion on Thursday, July 11, hosted by the International Center of Photography (ICP) and the Tisch School of the Arts Department of Photography and Imaging. Entitled What is the Global Image?, the panel will take place from 1-5pm at the Jurow Lecture Hall, Silver Center, New York University, 31 Washington Place.

Panelists include Catherine David (independent curator, Paris), Thomas Keenan (director, Human Rights Project, Bard College), Chus Martinez (chief curator, El Museo del Barrio, New York City), and artist Martha Rosler, who will debate whether photography can be a viable international language in a globalized and digitally networked world. The event was organized by ICP Curator and NYU photography professor Christopher Phillips and ICP Curator and Associate Director of Exhibitions Kristen Lubben to coincide with A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial, currently on view at ICP through September 22, 2013.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP is required and can be completed online.

This event is made possible with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Presented in collaboration with the Department of Photography and Imaging, New York University/Tisch.

The International Center of Photography (ICP) is the world’s leading institution dedicated to the practice and understanding of photography and the reproduced image in all its forms.
