Guided Tour

The Chinese Photobook: Tour with Ruben Lundgren

Saturday, February 14

2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Aperture Gallery and Bookstore 547 West 27th Street New York, NY


Join Ruben Lundgren of WassinkLundgren, cocurator of The Chinese Photobook, for a tour of the exhibition. Until now, only a handful of Chinese books have made it onto historians’ short lists; for the first time, this exhibition will reveal the richness and diversity of photobook publishing in China. It includes key volumes published as early as 1900, as well as contemporary volumes by emerging photographers.

The Chinese Photobook exhibition and publication have been made possible with generous support from the China Art Foundation, which was founded in 2008 to help ensure that the intense global interest in contemporary Chinese art and culture has a sustainable future, and to increase knowledge and understanding in the arena of art and culture between China and the rest of the world.





Exhibition coproduced by Aperture Foundation, New York, and Les Rencontres d’Arles, France.





The accompanying publication was made possible with additional contributions by Aperture supporters Celso Gonzalez-Falla and Sondra Gilman Gonzalez-Falla, Marina and Andrew E. Lewin, and David Solo.
