Dress Codes

International Center of Photography ICP, New York

The Third ICP Triennial of Photography and Video

comunicato stampa

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. Dress Codes opens to the public on October 2, 2009, at the International Center of Photography (1133 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street), and remains on view through January 17, 2010.

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. They cast a curious eye on the issues evoked by fashion and the past year’s exhibitions: How do we construct the selves that we show to the rest of the world? How is cultural identity or individuality expressed in an era of global culture? How can clothing, beauty, and style be employed to define community, fabricate fantasies, or signal power? And, in the midst of widespread economic crisis, how do we now regard the aesthetic of excess and high style that pervaded the past decade?

The 2009 Triennial marks the culmination of ICP’s Year of Fashion—a series of groundbreaking exhibitions that explored fashion photography in its widest social and cultural contexts. Following a series of extraordinarily well-received exhibitions of historical and contemporary fashion photography—such as Avedon Fashion 1944–2000, Edward Steichen: In High Fashion, The Condé Nast Years 1923–1937, and Weird Beauty: Fashion Photography Now—Dress Codes shifts the spotlight to image-makers who critically examine fashion’s relationship to art and other social phenomena.

Against this background, the works that have been selected for Dress Codes engage notions of fashion, costume, and personal style in innovative and unexpected ways. The curatorial team responsible for this selection is comprised of Vince Aletti, Kristen Lubben, Christopher Phillips, Carol Squiers, and curatorial assistant Judy Ditner. They will contribute to the exhibition’s wide range of educational materials and programs, including tours, lectures, outreach programs, and an online photo gallery, as well as a fully-illustrated exhibition catalogue published by ICP/Steidl. Bringing together photography and video works in a lively mix, it will underscore the new attention being directed to the relation of still and moving images by many artists today.

This exhibition was organized by the International Center of Photography with lead support from the ICP Exhibitions Committee. Additional support was provided by Marjorie and Jeffrey A. Rosen; Artur Walther; The Joseph and Joan Cullman Foundation for the Arts; Mary Ann and Frank Arisman; Peter Guggenheimer; Andrew and Marina Lewin; Étant donnés, the French-American Fund for Contemporary Art, a Program of FACE; the Mondriaan Foundation, Amsterdam; Roberta and Steven Denning; Omar H. Al-Farisi; Agnes Gund; Sandy and Ellen Luger; and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
