Billy Bragg Visits Aperture

Aperture Director Chris Boot catches up with singer-songwriter Billy Bragg upon his return to NYC for the Aperture Open Road Benefit Party and Auction.

 - September 19, 2014

For The Open Road Aperture Foundation Benefit Party and Auction, we commissioned Alec Soth, Billy Bragg, and Joe Purdy to take a road trip and create a live performance of music, photography, and video. They drove from Rock Island, Illinois, to Little Rock, Arkansas, performing and gathering material along the way. This week, Billy Bragg stopped by Aperture Gallery and spoke to executive director Chris Boot about the trip.

The Open Road Aperture Foundation Benefit Party and Auction, an evening of art and entertainment in tribute to Robert Frank, will take place October 21 at Terminal 5 in New York City. Purchase your ticket here
