The International Center of Photography is currently presenting the exhibition “Winning the White House: From Press Prints to Selfies,” which will be on view through January 27, 2017.
The show explores the complex relationship between presidential candidates’ general representations in visual media and the carefully crafted and controlled images generated by their campaigns. These range from official portraits, campaign ads and selfies to candidate packaging at television debates. Organized by the museum’s Assistant Curators Susan Carlson and Claartje van Dijk, the exhibition features works by Cornell Capa, Grey Villet, Elliott Erwitt, Bill Eppridge, Chris Buck, Stephen Crowley, Ken Light, Mark Peterson, Antoni Muntadas and Marshall Reese, among others, as well as campaign ephemera, posters, and video materials created for candidates from John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
The exhibition is on view at the ICP at Mana Contemporary, 888 Newark Avenue, Jersey City.
