Play the Part: Marlene Dietrich at ICP

2023-09-29 – 2024-01-08 · New York
Play the Part: Marlene Dietrich at ICP

Featuring nearly 200 photographs taken from 1906 to 1978, Play the Part: Marlene Dietrich examines the multifaceted evolution of Dietrich’s (1901–1992) public persona. The exhibition features photographs by well-known artists such as Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, and Edward Steichen as well as photographers with whom Dietrich collaborated repeatedly throughout her life, including the noted Hollywood photographer George Hurrell, Eugene Robert Richee, and William Walling Jr. Rarely seen and previously unpublished images, snapshots, some of the last photos of Marlene Dietrich, and other works complement the formal portraits and studio images that have come to represent Dietrich, illustrating the true complexity of her life. Assembled by collector Pierre Passebon, this exhibition marks the first time his noted collection will be shown in the United States.

  • Photo Exhibition: Letizia Battaglia – Sono Io

    2023-04-29 – 2023-11-01 · Italy
    Photo Exhibition: Letizia Battaglia – Sono Io

    Letizia Battaglia today has taken on a fundamental significance in the history of international photography. In “Une histoire mondiale des femmes photographes,” by Luce Lebart and Marie Robert, Laetitia Guillemin recalls Letizia Battaglia especially during the years of her collaboration with the Palermo daily L’Ora, during the bloody war of the Mafia in the 1970s and 1980s. Sono io is not a statement Letizia Battaglia would have ever said. We do so, extrapolating it from a sentence of hers much more articulate phrase that appeared in an interview a few years ago. With this exhibition we maintain the tradition of breaking schemes, erasing themes, ignoring chronologies, and constructing a polyphonic work, as representative as possible, offering a unified vision of a body of work that has lasted almost five decades. Photography and everyday life come together in a single path that highlights the extraordinary visual sensitivity, and the courage to be at the distance of a punch or a caress to conquer the image, often achieved in extreme contexts but always full of dignity. Photography reached Letizia Battaglia thanks to a series of fortuitous elements and becomes an important tool for her emancipation as a woman and mother.

  • The Water Holds Me: Photographs by Suda House

    The Water Holds Me: Photographs by Suda House

    The Water Holds Me reflects forty years of Suda House’s creative output. House’s large-scale photographs combine her journey as a woman, a mother, an artist, and an open-water ocean swimmer, each connected by a care and concern for our damaged planet. Experience the ocean and the mythology presented by Suda House, “Stroking. One, two, three, breathe. Kick, kick, kick, always kicking. We set out in the open ocean. The entire bottom bends back and forth with the current. We have no choice, but to become part of the motion.”

    PhEST is photography, cinema, music, art, and contaminations from the Mediterranean. PhEST is born out of the need to give back a voice to the thousand identities that form the “sea within the lands”, the need to redefine a new, original imagery. The necessity is not to erase the distance that the Mediterranean creates among these identities, because this sea, in fact, creates them and blends them. The need is rather to stitch back together the divide between reality and its representation, beyond the theater of truth, beyond that stage of the real that the West has often set up.

    Cara Romero: Indigenous Futurity at Fotografiska

    Fotografiska is pleased to present a selection of recent photographs by Cara Romero. In this body of work, Romero creates surreal and vibrant portraits that enact an Indigenous Futurity, tethered to Indigenous sciences and knowledges. In the artist’s own words: “The work I’ve made within the genre of Indigenous Futurisms really came from a deep creative space of wanting to play, of wanting to be imaginative, of wanting to talk about those connections to time and the power of Indigenous women.”
