Aperture Capital Campaign Auction, presented by Christie’s, Wednesday, October 2, 2019
Internationally acclaimed artists, collectors, and gallerists have generously donated works for a special photography auction, to be presented by Christie’s New York on October 2, 2019. All proceeds support Aperture’s 20/20: A Bold Vision capital campaign, directly funding Aperture’s purchase of a permanent space in New York—a flexible meeting, education, and event space and HQ for its global publishing operations.
Since its founding in 1952, Aperture has propelled the vision and dialogue that have shaped the course of photography, and your support will enable Aperture to serve the next generation of artists and thinkers, driving the medium forward. The auction features fifty-four lots, including photographs by Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Imogen Cunningham, Walker Evans, Nan Goldin, Todd Hido, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao, William Klein, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Joel Meyerowitz, Richard Misrach, Vik Muniz, Paul Outerbridge, Herb Ritts, Stephen Shore, Laurie Simmons, Paul Strand, and Hank Willis Thomas.
