Opening Reception

2015 Aperture Summer Open: Black Mirror

Thursday, July 16

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

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


For this year’s Summer Open, Aperture’s annual open-call exhibition, we asked photographers to consider the ways in which our current reality might echo outlandish narratives of science fiction. The twenty-four projects, culled from more than 500, and representing diverse subjects and photographic approaches, reflect aspects particular to our current moment. Their concerns run the gamut, from how technology increasingly permeates daily life to off-the-grid communities, the misused landscape, utopian architecture, the vocabularies of science and science fiction, among other concerns.

The 2015 Summer Open is curated by Michael Famighetti, editor of Aperture magazine. Click here for a list of participating photographers.
