    Conversation and Book Signing with Judy Glickman Lauder

    Whitney Museum of American Art

    99 Gansevoort Street

    New York,NY

    Register here!

    Join us as photographer, humanitarian, and philanthropist Judy Glickman Lauder speaks with Chris Boot, Executive Director of the Aperture Foundation, about her new book Beyond the Shadows: The Holocaust and the Danish Exception (Aperture, 2018) at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

    Beyond the Shadows responds to the mass murder of Jews during the Holocaust, while telling the uplifting story of how the citizens and leadership of Denmark, under occupation and at tremendous risk, defied the Third Reich to transport the country’s Jews to safety in Sweden. The book tells the extraordinary experiences of the ordinary people, who are the subject of Glickman Lauder’s remarkable photographs.

    With texts by Holocaust scholars Michael Berenbaum and Judith S. Goldstein, recollections by Danish Jewish survivors, and a previously unpublished text by Elie Wiesel, Beyond the Shadows demonstrates passionately what hate can lead to, and what can be done to stand in its path.

    The discussion will be introduced by Adam Weinberg, Alice Pratt Brown Director of the Whitney Museum of American Art, and followed by a book signing and reception.

    This event is free but registration is required. Please register via this link.

    Aperture Conversations: Laia Abril

    Aperture Gallery and Bookstore

    547 West 27th Street, 4th Floor

    New York,NY

    FREE

    Aperture Foundation is pleased to present an artist talk with Laia Abril, who will discuss her most recent book, On Abortion, which recently won the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook of the Year Award. This project presents Abril’s research on an often-dismissed history of women’s reproductive choices. Portraits are woven together with images of relevant political events and archival photographs to both document and conceptualize the dangers that women face all over the world when it comes to the inherent lack of access to safe methods of abortion. Abril uses visual and textual cues to encourage her audience to materialize what has remained unseen for so long.

    Laia Abril (b. 1986, Barcelona) is a multidisciplinary artist working with photography, text, video, and sound. After graduating with a degree in Journalism in 2009, she enrolled in the artist residency at FABRICA in Italy, where she worked for 5 years as a creative editor and staff photographer for COLORS Magazine. Abril’s work has been exhibited internationally and is part of private and public collections such as Musée de l’Elysée, Fotomuseum Winterthur, FRAC Centre, and Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. In 2018 her book, On Abortion (Dewi Lewis), won the Paris Photo – Aperture Foundation PhotoBook of the Year Award and became a current nominee of the Deutsche Börse Award. Currently, she is developing the following episodes: Chapter Two: On Rape —recipient of the Visionary Award from Tim Hetherington Trust, and the Genesis Chapter: On Mass Hysteria —current nominee of the Prix Elysée.

    Opening Reception: Prison Nation at Southeast Museum of Photography

    Southeast Museum of Photography

    1200 W International Speedway Blvd

    Daytona Beach,Florida

    Join us at the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona Beach, Florida for the opening of Prison Nation.

    Most prisons and jails across the United States do not allow prisoners to have access to cameras. At a moment when 2.2 million people are incarcerated in the US, 3.8 million people are on probation, and 870,000 former prisoners are on parole, how can images tell the story of mass incarceration when the imprisoned don’t have control over their own representation? How can photographs visualize a reality that disproportionately affects people of color, and, for many, remains outside of view?

    Incarceration impacts all of us. “Americans, even those who have never been to a prison or had a relative in prison, need to realize that we are all implicated in a form of governance that uses prison as a solution to many social, economic, and political problems,” Fleetwood notes. Empathy and political awareness are essential to creating systemic change—and through Aperture magazine, and the accompanying exhibition and public programming, “Prison Nation” may provoke us to see parts of ourselves in the lives of those on the inside.

    Aperture Conversations: Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa and Tina Campt

    Aperture Gallery and Bookstore

    547 West 27th Street

    New York,NY

    This event is free for students with ID and Aperture Members at the $50 level and above.

    Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the Photography Program at Parsons School of Design of The New School, is pleased to present a conversation between artist Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa and scholar Tina Campt. Join us for a night discussing One Wall a Web, Wolukau-Wanambwa’s first monograph, which recently won the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation First PhotoBook Prize. One Wall a Web consists of three chapters comprising two bodies of work. The book interweaves Wolukau-Wanambwa’s own photographs, a sequence of archival images, and two text collages, which together confront the normality of racist, classed, and gendered violence in American life.

    Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa is a photographer and writer who has contributed essays to publications by Vanessa Winship, George Georgiou, Rosalind Fox Solomon, Marton Perlaki, and Paul Graham. He has been an artist in residence at Light Work, guest edited Aperture’s PhotoBook Review, and written for Aperture, Foam, the Barbican, The Photographers’ Gallery, and Rutgers University Press. His debut monograph, One Wall a Web, was published by ROMA Publications in 2018. He has lectured at Yale, Cornell, New York University, and The New School.

    Tina Campt is Claire Tow and Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Africana and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Barnard College–Columbia University. She is the author of three books: Other Germans: Black Germans and the Politics of Race, Gender, and Memory in the Third Reich (2004), Image Matters: Archive, Photography, and the African Diaspora in Europe (2012), and Listening to Images (2017). She is the 2018–19 Abigail R. Cohen Fellow at the Columbia Institute for Ideas and Imagination in Paris, and Research Associate at the Visual Identities in Art and Design Research Centre at the University of Johannesburg.
