Slated for Monday, October 15 from 4 to 8:30pm at the ICP Museum (250 Bowery), the event also celebrates Unwavering Vision #3: 5,000 Images of Social and Cultural Change and Anne Morgan: Photography and Advocacy, a new interactive multimedia installation by Alan Govenar, Jean-Michel Sanchez, and Julien Roger, produced by Documentary Arts in association with on-situ.

The event marks the unveiling of two distinct yet connected digital exhibitions: Unwavering Vision #3, a collection of 5,000 images of social and cultural change from the collections of the International Center of Photography (ICP)—a project that garnered significant praise during its debut at Photo London earlier this year—and Anne Morgan: Photography and Advocacy, focusing on 1,000 images commissioned by the American philanthropist Anne Morgan to sensitize the American public to the humanitarian needs of people of France during and after World War I. The installation—both presented via Documentary Arts’ specially designed interactive kiosk and projector system—will be on view at the ICP Museum throughout the fall.
