This fall, we’re excited to host The Open Road Aperture Foundation Benefit Party and Auction, an evening of art and entertainment in tribute to Robert Frank, in conjunction with Aperture’s fall book release The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip.

In addition to live performances by the Kills and Alec Soth, Billy Bragg, and Joe Purdy, as well as a DJ set by AndrewAndrew, the evening will include a live auction of commissioned works inspired by the road and a silent auction of small framed works from one hundred photographers—“postcards” from the road. Some of these photographs are iconic, such as Martin Parr’s image from his series From A to B (1994), while others were inspired by the Benefit theme.

Visit the Open Road site for the latest news and to purchase Benefit tickets.
