International Center of Photography

The International Center of Photography has been doings this year that will make major impacts moving forward. It will be joining a fully integrated center at Essex Crossing on the Lower East Side of New York.

We have sold our space at 250 Bowery (though Your Mirror and For Freedoms remain on view through June 16!) and have finalized the purchase of the Essex property. We are continuing construction and plan to open our new permanent home in January 2020!

With this move, our unified School and Museum—our center—will become the cultural anchor of Essex Crossing and reinforce our ties with the vibrant Lower East Side arts community. In addition, the neighborhood’s history as a center of immigration and documentary and creative work-making align with our goal to serve as a center for our community to explore photography and visual culture as mediums of empowerment and catalysts for social change.

In advance of this significant move, we will transition our educational programs and staff to the second floor of the Grace Building at 1114 Avenue of the Americas, adjacent to our current Midtown location.

Since this space will not be fully operational until mid-August, we are unable to hold on-campus summer classes in 2019. We will offer online classes as well as a modified schedule of off-campus classes at partner locations. Our Continuing Education fall term, starting September 7, 2019, will be the first classes held here.
