The Naomi Rosenblum ICP Talks Photographer Lecture Series Presents: Sunil Gupta with Gayatri Gopinath

Photographer Sunil Gupta joins Gayatri Gopinath, scholar and Director of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University, for a conversation exploring Gupta's four-decade long career dedicated to exploring the global marginalization of queer identity and race through his projects.

This program is being offered both in person at ICP, located on NYC's Lower East Side, and online. Tickets to attend the conversation in person are $5 and do not include access to ICP's galleries. Online tickets are available for free.
