ICP Set to Close Midtown Museum

The International Center of Photography, New York, has announced that it will close its midtown museum, reports Rozalia Jovanovic of Artnet. The museum’s lease with the Durst Organization, which comes to an end in January 2015, will not be renegotiated. Founded in 1974, the center has been at its midtown location since the 1980s. “ICP has decided to move its current museum to a new space,” explained executive director Mark Lubell. “This decision reflects the evolution of photography and our role in setting the agenda for visual communications for the twenty-first century.” The museum will announce its future site in spring 2014.
