Every three years, New York's International Center of Photography (ICP) presents a global survey of the most exciting and challenging new work in photography and video-the only recurrent U.S. exhibition to specialize in this field. Opening in September 2009, the Third ICP Triennial takes place within a yearlong cycle of ICP exhibitions that critically examine fashion and its relation to contemporary art and other cultural phenomena. Through the lens of fashion, the Triennial will look at the proliferation of photo- and video-based work, exploring the current uses of style, image and self-presentation. Among the artists taking part in the Triennial are Yto Barrada, Valérie Belin, Jacqueline Hassink, Hu Yang, Kimsooja, Jeremy Kost, Tanya Marcuse, Anne Morgenstern, Grace Ndiritu, David Rosetzky, Cindy Sherman, Lorna Simpson, Hank Willis Thomas, Mikalene Thomas and Pinar Yolacan. Encompassing a huge range of extremely diverse practices and ideas, the works in the exhibition all reflect a shared conviction that style and fashion stand at the center of today's liveliest and most significant cultural manifestations.
