The International Center of Photography's current exhibition, Perpetual Revolution: The Image and Social Change, explores the relation between the overwhelming image world that confronts us, and the volatile, provocative, and often-violent social world it mirrors. The exhibition presents six of these critical issues transformed by visual culture: #BlackLivesMatter, gender fluidity, climate change, terrorist propaganda, the right-wing fringe and the 2016 election, and the refugee crisis. Our programs offer additional opportunities to explore these topics in depth and in conversation with artists, writers, cultural producers and academics. These free programs also explore urgent political events through the lens of visual culture; taking up ICP’s long-standing mission to explore the power of images and their ability to both reflect and shape our society.

In Conversation: George Hawley, is the first in a month long series of programs specifically focused on further exploring the topics in Perpetual Revolution. Hawley is the author of Right-Wing Critics of American Conservatism and assistant professor of political science at the University of Alabama. His talk at the ICP Museum will focus on how visual culture and the internet have given a voice to the alt-right movement.
