About the Aperture Summer Open

The Aperture Summer Open is an annual open-submission exhibition at Aperture Foundation’s gallery in New York, featuring a wide variety of work by photographers and lens-based artists from around the world. Selected by a jury of leading editors, curators, and writers, the exhibition seeks to reveal and report on key themes and trends driving contemporary photography. The exhibition opens the doors to photographers of all ages, at all points in their careers, as we seek to promote new ideas and talent.

Special thanks to Aperture’s Summer Open partner Adobe for gifting a one-year subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan for 2019 Featured Artists.

Aperture Foundation’s public programs and exhibitions are supported, in part, by generous donations from our Board of Trustees, our Members and other individuals, private foundations including the Grace Jones Richardson Trust, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
