5. EVENTS: "A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial"
The International Center of Photography recently launched "A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial, an exhibition that includes 28 international artists who employ photography, film, video, and interactive media. Nayland Blake’s commissioned installation "Knee Deep in the Flooded Victory" weaves together images and objects from ICP’s collection with his own archive to evoke the pageantry and serendipity of Times Square alongside moments of gay liberation and street activism. His piece culminates in a July 12 performance, in which he will lead a procession through the sites of Times Square’s vanished gay adult theaters and cruising spots, greeting tourists in the guise of his new persona, Victorya Spectre, an elaborately costumed figure meant to evoke the queer royalty of New York’s past.
