NEW YORK, N.Y.- As part of a first-time, special exhibition during Paris Photo 2011, the International Center of Photography will present Sudden Impact: Photography on the Printed Page November 10–13, 2011 at the Nave of the Grand Palais. ICP joins the Tate Modern and the Musée de l’Elysée in the Recent Acquisitions exhibition, which explores a variety of museum acquisition strategies. Sudden Impact: Photography on the Printed Page includes more than 40 works: issues of magazines such as Vu, Regards, Arbeiter Illustrierte Zeitung, and Picture Post; vintage prints by photographers such as Robert Capa and Weegee; and posters by Gustav Klutsis. “The first half of the 20th Century was one of the notable periods of innovation in photography and yet it is remarkable that during those years it was rare for photographic prints to be seen on the walls of museums or galleries,” said ICP Chief Curator Brian Wallis. &#147
