The International Center of Photography (ICP) is closing its midtown museum location when its lease from the Durst Organization comes to an end in January 2015. It is currently looking for a new space. Founded in 1974, the ICP has been in its current location since the 1980s. The ICP School, which is across the street from the museum, at 1114 Avenue of the Americas, will remain in its location.
According to a statement issued by the museum: "The International Center of Photography has chosen to move from our current museum site in January 2015 in order to develop a space that reflects our vision and the explosive growth of visual communications."
ICP has also announced the winners of the 2014 Infinity Awards, which will be presented on April 28.
Jürgen Schadeberg, a German-born South African photographer, curator, editor, and teacher known for his depictions of Apartheid, particularly his iconic images of Neslon Mandela, will be presented with the Cornell Capa Lifetime Achievement Award.
