Public, Private, Secret is the premiere exhibition at the new ICP Museum, located at 250 Bowery, opening June 23. Organized by Curator-in-Residence, Charlotte Cotton, with ICP Associate Curator Pauline Vermare and Assistant Curator Marina Chao, the debut show and events program explore the concept of privacy in today’s society and studies how contemporary self-identity is tied to public visibility.

This thought-provoking exhibition presents a wide range of historical and contemporary works by artists including Zach Blas, Martine Syms, Natalie Bookchin, Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin, and Andy Warhol. Streams of real-time images and videos from various social media sources — curated with Mark Ghuneim and ICP’s New Media Narratives students — sharpen and heighten attention towards the social implications of our image-centric world.

Also on view as part of this exhibtion are portraits from the series Femmes Algériennes by Marc Garanger, an anti-colonialist photographer who was drafted into the French army during the Algerian War. In a loan from the Paula Cooper Gallery, Sophie Calle’s The Sleepers will add to the French showing in this exhibtion.

ICP Curator-in-Residence Charlotte Cotton says, “Public, Private, Secrets non-hierarchical organization allows for dialogue between and about the diversity of photographic and visual culture in a wholly unique and unexpected way.”

The exhibition creates a physical experience through which to examine photography’s role in breaking and resetting the boundaries of social and personal privacy.
