    For The Open Road Aperture Foundation Benefit Party and Auction, we commissioned Alec Soth, Billy Bragg, and Joe Purdy to take a road trip and create a live performance of music, photography, and video. They drove from Rock Island, Illinois, to Little Rock, Arkansas, performing and gathering material along the way. This week, Billy Bragg stopped by Aperture Gallery and spoke to executive director Chris Boot about the trip. The Open Road Aperture Foundation Benefit Party and Auction, an evening of art and entertainment in tribute to Robert Frank, will take place October 21 at Terminal 5 in New York City.

      "The Sochi Project" by Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen is available online here: http://bit.ly/1kiLuj2 On June 3, 2014, we joined Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen at our gallery to discuss The Sochi Project: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus. The project offers an alternative perspective and in-depth reporting on the remarkable Sochi region that sits at the combustible crossroads of war, tourism, and history. They have returned repeatedly to this region since 2009 as committed practitioners of “slow journalism,” establishing a solid foundation of research on and engagement with this small yet incredibly complicated place before it found itself in the glare of international media attention.

              "Chewing Gum and Chocolate" by Shomei Tomatsu is available online here: http://bit.ly/1plbuaK Shomei Tomatsu, one of Japan’s foremost twentieth-century photographers, created one of the defining portraits of postwar Japan. Beginning in the late 1950s, Tomatsu committed to photographing as many of the American military bases in Japan as possible, focusing on the seismic impact of the American victory and occupation: uniformed American soldiers carousing in red-light districts with Japanese women; foreign children at play in seedy landscapes, home to American forces; and the emerging protest formed in response to the ongoing American military presence. On May 20, 2014, we joined photographer Leo Rubinfien (editor and essayist of Tomatsu’s recent Aperture publication Chewing Gum and Chocolate), Dr. Miwako Tezuka, and Matthew Witkovsky for a panel discussion on Tomatsu’s work and influence on a generation of Japanese photographers.

                      On Saturday, May 10, 2014, Aperture hosted a panel discussion addressing street photography in the twenty-first century, featuring Philip-Lorca diCorcia, James Nares, and Katherine A. Bussard. The panel was moderated by Brian Sholis, associate curator of photography at the Cincinnati Art Museum. At a moment when public discussion of cameras in public spaces revolves around policing and First Amendment rights, can artists and photographers use photography and film to reveal new facets of the urban environment? Can artworks remind us that urban public places are also home to unequaled creative and imaginative possibilities? Two artists whose work was included in an exhibition on street photography at the Cincinatti Art Museum, Philip-Lorca diCorcia and James Nares, joined Katherine A. Bussard, curator of photography at the Princeton University Art Museum and author of Unfamiliar Streets (Yale, 2014), and Brian Sholis, associate curator of photography at the Cincinnati Art Museum, for a discussion of these and related questions.
