 "International Center of Photography: ‘Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and Bureaucracy of Everyday Life’ New York Times Critics' Pick
International Center of Photography
through Jan. 6 (closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day)

With more than 500 photographs — supplemented by books, magazines, posters and films — spread over two floors, this show documenting institutionalized racism in South Africa from 1948 to the election of Nelson Mandela in 1994 can’t help being overwhelming. But it’s pitched as much to the mind, as to the heart. On the one hand, it’s a grand narrative of stirring sights: ardent faces, agitated bodies, camaraderie, clenched fists, funerals."
