INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY MOVES INTO NEW HOME ON THE BOWERY
The International Center of Photography (ICP) is in the midst of a big move as the world’s leading photography institution prepares to take its renowned 1133 Avenue of the Americas museum to a new location downtown.
In April, RKF announced the sale of an 11,000-square-foot space at 250 Bowery to ICP, who confirmed the new space will be ready for a Fall 2015 move-in. The Bowery has seena renaissancein the last decade with a boom of new luxury apartments,restaurants, boutiques and galleries.
“ICP is a leader in the contemporary art world,” said Atria Properties’ Jane McVerry, who represented ICP in the transaction. “When it came time to look for a new location for the historic and revered organization, the Bowery— with its eclectic mix of galleries, the New Museum and the Bowery Hotel— was an obvious choice.”
Duggal is the preferred print and graphics provider for ICP, partnering in everything from their Lecture Series and Infinity Awards gala to thePicture Windowsproject. We are also proud of our recent work in establishingthe visual presence of the new museum.
As distinguished architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill builds out the new ICP Museum, the Bowery community and tourists alike are engaging with the very first ICP installment at its new home: a window display of vintage black-and-white imagery with consulting, printing and installation by Duggal Visual Solutions. It’s already clear that ICP will be a main attraction on the Bowery for years to come.
