About the Exhibition
Today, viewers are barraged by seemingly endless streams of new kinds of media images on an unprecedented scale. Perpetual Revolution: The Image and Social Change explores the relation between the overwhelming image world that confronts us, and the volatile, provocative, and often-violent social world it mirrors.
This exhibition continues ICP’s long-standing tradition of exploring the social and historic impact of visual culture by presenting six critical issues transformed by imagemaking: #BlackLivesMatter, gender fluidity, climate change, terrorist propaganda, the 2016 presidential election and the right-wing fringe, and the refugee crisis.
