Press Release: Dress Codes at International Center of Photography

Dress Codes: The Third ICP Triennial of Photography and Video
International Center of Photography, 1133 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street, New York, NY 10036

The International Center of Photography
is proud to present Dress Codes: The Third ICP Triennial of Photography and Video, a global survey of today’s most exciting and innovative photography and video art. As ICP's signature exhibition - and the only one of its kind in America - this year's Triennial promises to be the most dynamic yet, featuring over 100 recent works by 34 artists from 18 countries. The newly released roster of artists includes such rising stars as Mickalene Thomas, Yto Barrada, Kimsooja, and Thorsten Brinkmann, as well as established artists such as Cindy Sherman, Stan Douglas, and Lorna Simpson. As with previous ICP Triennials, this year's exhibition has a thematic focus: fashion. The artists in Dress Codes understand fashion as a form of social communication, and use costume, clothing, and disguise to create a rich visual language filled with specific references to history, culture, gender, and geography.
