“The International Center of Photography will present a new exhibition spanning seven decades—from the 1910s to the 1970s—focusing on how photographers portray their friends. On view from January 27 through May 1, 2023, Between Friends: From the ICP Collection offers viewers intimate moments of collaboration between artists and their friends—in snapshots, casual studio portraits, and going about their everyday lives.
The exhibition features portraits of artists and writers such as Leonard Bernstein, Truman Capote, Helen Frankenthaler, Georgia O’Keefe, and Saul Steinberg by well-known photographers and artists including Ansel Adams, Berenice Abbott, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Stieglitz and Andy Warhol. Between Friends also calls attention to many women photographers from ICP’s collection, including Nell Dorr, Lotte Jacobi, Consuelo Kanaga, and Barbara Morgan. Between Friends continues a new series drawn from ICP’s collection of photographs and related materials. The exhibition is curated by Sara Ickow, Senior Manager of Exhibitions and Collections at ICP.” — ICP
“The stories behind these images are poignant, funny, sad or uplifting,” notes Sara Ickow about the exhibition. “The images bring to light friendships and connections between artists that were long forgotten and document the importance of friendships to the creative process and an artist’s legacy.”
