Presenting the works of 50 contemporary artists and photographers from around the world, Strangersexplores the different roles the camera now plays in negotiating the boundaries between public and private life, trust and fear, intimacy and isolation. Accompanying the first recurring exhibition of its kind devoted to photography and related media at the International Center of Photography in New York, Strangersinvestigates the social world through images that have been created as a result of encounters with people unknown to one another. In addition to the more personal and psychological aspects of estrangement, the artists in Strangersalso engage with the theme of globalization and diaspora--an especially timely subject in its geopolitical ramifications. Strangersincludes illuminating biographical essays on each of the artists and their works; four original essays by ICP curators Brian Wallis, Christopher Phillips, Carol Squiers and Edward Earle that explore the ever-evolving and prescient theme of strangers; and approximately 200 images generated in a variety of media from traditional and digital processes to multimedia installations and video. Artists represented include Olivio Barbieri, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Luc Delahaye, Rineke Dijkstra, David Goldblatt, Bill Henson, Susan Meiselas, Shirin Neshat, John Schabel and Joel Sternfeld, among others.
