Executive Director, International Center of Photography
Mark Lubell is the Executive Director of the International Center of Photograph (ICP), the world’s leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture. He is currently overseeing the organization’s move to its new, fully integrated center at Essex Crossing, on the Lower East Side in New York City, which is the culmination of a twenty year goal to reunite ICP’s exhibitions and education programs.
Prior to joining ICP in 2013, he was the director of Magnum Photos, whose history is closely tied to ICP–Cornell Capa founded ICP in 1974 in honor of his brother Robert Capa, a founding photojournalist of Magnum. Lubell was also Chief Operating Officer of Here is New York: A Democracy of Photographs, which was formed in the aftermath of the events of September 11, 2001. In 2007, American Photo named Lubell Innovator of the Year for his pioneering approach to multimedia and online communities.
The International Center of Photography (ICP) is the world’s leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture. Cornell Capa founded ICP in 1974 to preserve the legacy of concerned photography—the creation of socially and politically minded images that can inform, educate, and change the world.
Through its exhibitions, education programs, events, and community outreach, ICP offers an open forum for dialogue about the power of the image. To date, ICP has presented more than 700 exhibitions and offered thousands of classes at every level.
ICP will open a new, fully integrated center reuniting its exhibitions and education programs at Essex Crossing, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side in January 2020. For more information, visit www.icp.org.
