The old saying “one picture is worth ten thousand words” can never be truer in the image world we live in today. Every single day we encounter new images carrying new messages, which create exciting, diverse, and at times frightening conversations. The exhibition being held in ICP explores these powerful media images and their connections to social transformation. There will be moments when you face images that are very challenging to face, and you might also have to doubt the stories being told to you (especially as you pass by the hour-long propaganda videos of ISIS), but these moments solidifies the power and the danger of the image-based culture we have cultivated.
This exhibition is recommended to everyone, especially in this political climate. Oh, and global warming is real.*
