Play the Part: Marlene Dietrich at ICP

2023-09-29 – 2024-01-08 · New York, United States of America
Play the Part: Marlene Dietrich at ICP

Featuring nearly 200 photographs taken from 1906 to 1978, Play the Part: Marlene Dietrich examines the multifaceted evolution of Dietrich’s (1901–1992) public persona. The exhibition features photographs by well-known artists such as Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, and Edward Steichen as well as photographers with whom Dietrich collaborated repeatedly throughout her life, including the noted Hollywood photographer George Hurrell, Eugene Robert Richee, and William Walling Jr. Rarely seen and previously unpublished images, snapshots, some of the last photos of Marlene Dietrich, and other works complement the formal portraits and studio images that have come to represent Dietrich, illustrating the true complexity of her life. Assembled by collector Pierre Passebon, this exhibition marks the first time his noted collection will be shown in the United States.

  • I’m a thousand different people–Every one is real

    2024-03-15 – 2025-01-05 · New York, United States of America
    I’m a thousand different people–Every one is real

    Taking its title from a drawing by artist and queer icon Candy Darling, this exhibition brings together a selection of works recently acquired by the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art. Darling’s words evoke the multidimensionality of queer and trans life and artistic practices that insist on defining art and life entirely on one’s own terms. Taken together, the exhibited works–across various media and representational styles–embrace a spectral, prismatic approach to rendering LGBTQIA+ existence. Both contemporary and historical, the works elide the demand for authenticity and easy legibility, instead holding space for plurality, reinvention, and fantasy.

    FRAME[O]UT – Open-air Cinema in the MQ Vienna

    The FRAME[O]UT open-air film festival 2024 edition will take place every Friday and Saturday from July 12th to August 31st in the MuseumsQuartier, Vienna, Austria (free admission). The motto of the festival this year is “GARDEN”. Gardens are not just physical places; they reflect identities, dreams, and visions. They are deeply rooted in culture and demonstrate our connection to nature. In times of climate crisis, threatened biodiversity, and social injustice, Frameout 2024 transforms the GARDEN into a venue for change and familiar garden metaphors are reinterpreted through cinematic perspectives. In short film programs, we encounter talking plants, a giant asparagus, and secret gardens expressing fantasies and desires.
