The 2018 Aperture Summer Open: The Way We Live Now

The Aperture Summer Open is an annual open-submission exhibition at Aperture Foundation’s gallery in New York, featuring a wide variety of work by photographers from around the world. The exhibition opens the doors of the foundation to photographers of all ages, at all points in their careers, as we seek to promote new ideas and talent.

The theme of the 2018 Aperture Summer Open is “The Way We Live Now”. The curators seek new bodies of work by photographers defining a moment of rapid change in culture, politics, technology, and self-expression. Across ideas of beauty and style, landscape and environment, and media and connectivity, how do photographs define the currents and contradictions of our moment?

The 2018 Aperture Summer Open: The Way We Live Now, will be curated by Siobhán Bohnacker, senior photo editor, the New Yorker; Marvin Orellana, photo editor, New York magazine; Antwaun Sargent, independent writer and critic; and Brendan Wattenberg, managing editor, Aperture magazine.
