Aperture Gallery - Aperture Gallery Past Exhibitions
For the past fifteen years, Dawoud Bey has made striking, large-scale color portraits of students at high schools across the United States. Depicting teenagers from a wide economic, social, and ethnic spectrum—and intensely attentive to their poses and gestures—he has created a highly diverse group portrait of a generation that challenges teenage stereotypes.
In Paris—New York—Shanghai, Dutch conceptual artist Hans Eijkelboom creates a clever and witty comparative study of three major contemporary metropolises, each selected for having been (or promising to be) the cultural capital of its time—Paris during the nineteenth century; New York, the twentieth; and Shanghai, the twenty-first.
The broadest and most revealing survey of its kind, Lisette Model and Her Successors brings together for the first time a selection of vintage works by Lisette Model—one of the last century’s most significant photographers—and thirteen of her students who went on to leave their own marks on American photographic history.
Time of Change Photographs by Bruce Davidson and The Black Panthers: Making Sense of History Photographs by Stephen ShamesThursday, May 17, 2007–Thursday, August 2, 2007
Aperture Gallery is pleased to exhibit two seminal photographic documents of the civil rights movement: Bruce Davidson’s Time of Change and Stephen Shame’s The Black Panthers: Making Sense of History
Over the past decade, Dutch photographer Bert Teunissen has documented hundreds of old European homes. These are rudimentary yet cultured settings aglow with a warm, timeless atmosphere; spaces in which a primary interior feature is that of natural light. Made in numerous countries, including the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Italy, France, Great Britain, Spain, and Portugal, his poignant photographs capture and record architecture—and a way of life—that is quickly disappearing.
