  • International Center of Photography 
    The International Center of Photography (ICP) showcases work drawn from its archives that house more than 100,000 photographs spanning from the medium’s beginnings to the present day. Through September 8, see A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial. Curated by ICP staff, the exhibition serves as an artistic commentary on economic, social and political instability and features the work of 27 photographers, videographers, filmmakers and new-media professionals from around the world. Later in the month, JFK November 22, 1963: A Bystander's View of History (September 20–January 12, 2014) marks 50 years since the assassination of the US president and features photographs taken by bystander Abraham Zapruder. Lewis Hine's Lasting Legacy (September 20–January 12, 2014) examines the photographer's work for the National Research Project which centered around employment and industrialism, along with his photographs of Ellis Island, the construction of the Empire State Building and his documentation of child labor and immigration. And Philadelphia-based photographer Zoe Strauss brings a survey of her city's economic plights and living conditions to NYC in Zoe Strauss: 10 Years (October 4–January 12, 2014). The show illuminates the political activism of the artist who made her name by selling accessible and inexpensive photographs under a highway overpass.
