An after-hours walk through the new International Center of Photography for their CONTACT HIGH exhibition


The International Center of Photography is back in business at a shiny new four-story location on the Lower East Side. It’s re-opening started out with a bang, with plenty of new programming spanning its 40,000 square feet that fuses its school and museum into one colossal institution.

On Wednesday night you can get a peek at the behind-the-scenes of CONTACT HIGH: A Visual History of Hip-Hop.  Join the curator of the exhibition, Vikki Tobak, to explore the landscape of music photography spanning the 1970’s to now, and see how digital photography and social media has potentially made this artform obsolete.

Break up your chilly February weeknight routine with the perfect mid-week infusion of a late night at the museum. Tickets are $20 ($15 if you’re a member of ICP), and the event begins at 7pm at ICP’s new location of 79 Essex Street.
