artMRKT San Francisco and Richard Misrach

“Showcasing new artists alongside historical material, artMRKT will create an ideal context for the discovery, discussion and placement of artwork.”

The San Francisco iteration of artMRKT marks the start of the brand’s 2012 modern and contemporary fair season. Currently in it’s second year, the San Francisco fair will combine the work of seventy leading galleries with a thoughtful program of art events and exhibitions at the fair venue and throughout the city. Aperture will be on site in 2012 with limited-edition prints, books, and the latest from Aperture magazine in tow, including our latest prints “Model Dining Room,” from the series Occupied Territory by Lynne Cohen, and “Animal (127)” by Elliot Ross.

The 2012 re-issue of Lynne Cohen’s first monograph, Occupied Territory, is also forthcoming from Aperture, “an exploration of domestic and institutional interior spaces—sometimes idealized, sometimes standardized, humorous, and disquieting.” “Model Dining Room” is a piece of this larger puzzle, representing Cohen’s visual exploration of interior space as simulated experience.

We also recommend joining acclaimed artist Richard Misrach, whose lauded Golden Gate is being reissued in a new oversized edition for the iconic bridge’s 75th anniversary, for the weekend’s keynote address plus a book signing on Saturday, May 19th.

Richard Mosse: Infra

Débris, North Kivu, Eastern Congo, 2011 by Richard Mosse. Limited edition print available for purchase at Aperture.

Join us on Monday, March 5, 2012 at 6:30 pm at Aperture Gallery for an artist talk with photographer Richard Mosse , followed by a book signing and reception for his new book Infra.

Over the course of two years, Mosse documented the ongoing war in the Democratic Republic of Congo using a discontinued type of color infrared surveillance film called Kodak Aerochrome to offer a stunning and radical rethinking of how to depict a complex and intractable conflict.  With film that is extra sensitive to green light, he renders the rich typography of the country as well as the camouflage of the Congolese army and combative rebel groups in vivid hues of lavender, crimson, and hot pink.

This is Mosse’s first monograph, co-published by Aperture and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.  These improbably colored images underline the growing tension between art, fiction, and traditional photojournalism as a way of portraying and communicating the impact of war. Mosse states that the collection works “through shocks to the imagination,” using photography’s unique ability “to make visible what cannot be perceived.”

Select large format prints from the collection are currently on view at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC through April 15, organized by Xandra Eden, Curator of Exhibitions.

Mosse’s limited edition print “Débris, North Kivu, Eastern Congo,” is also now available for purchase at Aperture. Mosse calls the ethereal shot a “surprising” double-exposure that came about by accident in March 2011. “‘Débris ‘pushed me to embrace failure and let go of certain ways of seeing.”

Photographs by Richard Mosse have been featured on the cover of Aperture magazine #203.

Neil Leifer Book Signing, Sep. 22nd!

Neil Leifer, a legendary sports journalism photographer, has released the trade edition of his book, “Guts & Glory: The Golden Age of American Football, 1958-1978,” published by Taschen. Auto Body Repair Shop King of Prussia . seattle apartments .

Leifer is best known for his photograph from Muhammad Ali’s match against Sonny Liston, where Ali towers over Liston. Even while capturing boxing’s most iconic image, Leifer is still best known for his photographs of football. In 1958, on his 16th birthday, Leifer captured the game-winning “Sudden Death” touchdown by Alan Ameche, the game known as “the greatest ever played,” giving football its edge in taking over as America’s new sport, surpassing baseball.

With sixteen published books under his belt since 1978, this collection of photographs represents his best from over 10,000 rolls of film for the sport. Leifer adds more than 200 Sports Illustrated, Time, and People covers to his name. His photo essay and cover for Time magazine in July 1984 with an Olympic Preview became one of the largest photo essays published. Some special projects include feature film photography for The Longest Yard, Rocky II and III, Staying Alive, and White Men Can’t Jump, just to name a few. Leifer is also a 2006 Lucie Award Honoree for Achievement in Sports.

As Bob Costas said, “If you are a sports fan, you have to be a Neil Leifer admirer, for you have been seeing his pictures and they’ve been shaping your impressions and memories for five decades.”

The book signing will be held at the ESPN Zone in the new L.A. Live in Downtown on Sep. 22, 2011 from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
