Aperture Gallery Past Exhibitions
PRINTING SHOW is a recreation of Daido Moriyama’s 1974 performance of the same name. Following the format of the original performance as closely as possible, in lieu of prints mounted on the gallery walls, visitors to the gallery will find the photographer stationed at a photocopy machine duplicating his photographic prints. As was done forty years ago, these photocopied sheets will be assembled and staple-bound with a silk-screened cover printed in the gallery space during the performance.
Aperture Foundation is pleased to announce the highly anticipated re-release of Bruce Davidson’s iconic Subway—a groundbreaking series documenting a unique moment in the cultural fabric of New York City, coinciding with an exhibition on view at Aperture Gallery.
What should we be looking at? What Matters Now? Proposals for a New Front Page will combine the crowd sourcing of images and ideas with the curatorial engagement of six experienced individuals, each hosting a table and a conversation within the space, where on corresponding walls each group will present its proposals for the contents of a ‘New Front Page’.
Fieldwork explores the dialectics of nature and culture in both artistic and scientific contexts. With her gentle humor, Finnish photographer Sanna Kannisto both recognizes and utilizes the constraints of science and photography alike, investigating the concept of truth in photography to challenge how we view and “know” the natural world.
