Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Join Aperture Foundation and Olivia Bee to celebrate the launch of her first book, Kids in Love (Aperture, 2016), and pop-up exhibition at Aperture. Bee is celebrated for her dreamy and evocative portraits of her friends, her new loves, and the young people around her, all of whom are on the brink of adulthood and new possibilities. Kids in Love showcases two bodies of work: Enveloped in a Dream and Kids in Love, and includes an interview with Bee and Tavi Gevinson.
The exhibition is made possible with generous support from Iconoclast.
Olivia Bee (born in Portland, Oregon, 1994) is based in Brooklyn. After the recognition received for her photographs on social media, Converse commissioned Bee, at the age of fifteen, to shoot her first ad. She has since gone on to shoot campaigns for brands such as Hermès, Levi’s, and Apple, and editorial features for publications such as Vogue, Vice, New York, the New York Times, and Le Monde. Her photography has been featured in solo shows at Agnès B, New York, and Bernal Espacio, Madrid. In January 2016, Bee was featured as one of Forbes’s “30 under 30” to watch list of artist and style innovators, “creating and designing the future, from the gallery to the runway.”
