The “Aperture Gala” will be honoring The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation in its 2019 edition.
The event will take place the 3rd of June 2019 in the Aperture Foundation, New York.
Aperture, a not-for-profit foundation, connects the photo community and its audiences with the most inspiring work, the sharpest ideas, and with each other—in print, in person, and online. Created in 1952 by photographers and writers as “common ground for the advancement of photography,” Aperture today is a multi-platform publisher and center for the photo community. See an interactive timeline which details the history of Aperture. From their base in New York, they produce, publish, and present a program of photography projects, locally and internationally.
