Talk and Book Signing with James Mollison
Saturday, April 18
This event is free for students with ID and Aperture Members at the $50 level and above.
James Mollison’s photo projects are defined by smart, original concepts applied to serious social and environmental themes. His work has been featured widely in such publications as Colors, the New York Times Magazine, and the Paris Review, among many others. He has also published several books, among them James and Other Apes (2004), The Disciples (2008), and Where Children Sleep (2010).
This April, Aperture publishes Playground, a book of photographs of children at play in their school playgrounds, inspired by Mollison’s own childhood and his interest in how we all learn to negotiate relationships and our place in the world through play; it will be accompanied by an exhibition on view at Aperture Gallery until June 11. At this talk, Mollison will discuss this recent work as well as other projects, followed by a book signing.
