Aperture Foundation: Benefit Auction 2018

Auction opens Oct 16 12:00 PM EDT

On Tuesday, October 30, Aperture Foundation will hold its 2018 Gala and Auction, honoring five artists and leaders—Agnes Gund, Catherine Gund, Catherine Opie, Hank Willis Thomas, and Dr. Deborah Willis—for their contributions to art and photography and to the power of family: the human family, the families who support us (including the families we choose), and the Aperture family of photography.

Since 1952, Aperture has helped define the genre of photography by publishing some of the most thought-provoking artists of our time, including Diane Arbus, Sally Mann, Mickalene Thomas, Nan Goldin, and LaToya Ruby Frazier. Aperture today continues to publish classic and contemporary publications, issues a quarterly magazine, and presents education programs and exhibitions in New York, across North America, worldwide, and online.

All proceeds go toward Aperture’s general operating fund, and its mission to serve the art, story, and community of photography.
