The Future Perfect brings together work from the last five years of graduating classes from three programs at ICP—General Studies, Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism, and the ICP-Bard MFA. More than 100 years after the rise of Futurism, the work of these alumni artists and photographers ventures into the technical, aesthetic, and ethical questions of our era in novel, compelling ways: how do we mark time? How does technology and appearance express authority and reach? How do social, personal, and human concerns rendered through the full expression of photographic language make work that is worth saving? If photography can be compared to a language, what will it have said?
