Don’t miss out on our 2011 Benefit, Auction, and SNAP! Party! Taking place on Monday, October 17, the evening will begin with a cocktail reception and silent auction of classic and contemporary photographs. Then, a dinner, brief award ceremony, and live auction conducted by Denise Bethel, Senior Vice President and Director of Photographs, Sotheby’s. Finishing the night, there will be a Benefit Party hosted by SNAP! New Collectors Program.
We are proud to honor this year Bruce Davidson, a Magnum Photos member and one of America’s most influential photographers; Gerhard Steidl, for his outstanding skill and craftsmanship as a printer and publisher; and Robert Anthoine, Aperture Chairman Emeritus, who has dedicated over thirty years to helping lead Aperture to prominence in the field of photographic publishing.
Benefit co-chairs are Sondra Gilman, Susan Gutfreund, and Karl Lagerfeld. Auction co-chairs are Cathy Kaplan, Anne Stark, and Severn Taylor.
Immediately following the Benefit Dinner and Auction will be the SNAP! New Collectors Benefit Party featuring an exciting Emerging Artists Auction, live jazz by DW-40, and spinning by Japanster. This event is co-chaired by artist Jowhara AlSaud, Peter Berberian of Gotham Imaging, Emily Bierman of Sotheby’s, and actor Ken Triwush.
The auctions feature a range of work by both established and emerging artists. Click here to preview the artworks, and even start bidding online!
Proceeds from the Benefit—our most important fundraising event of the year—are essential for Aperture’s publications, exhibitions, and public programs, which provide unmatched exposure for artists and scholars working in photography.
Come mingle with fellow photography lovers and celebrate Aperture Foundation. We look forward to having you join us for this special event!
