Celebrating the forthcoming “Family” issue of Aperture magazine, this conversation will consider how artists and photographers have chronicled their relationships to their families and communities. This panel brings together three photographers, each of whom has created a body of work about the complexity of family: Justine Kurland’s new series about her mother; Zun Lee’s collection of Polaroid snapshots of African American family life; and Diana Markosian’s new project depicting the story of her mother, who moved with her family from Russia to Santa Barbara, California, as a mail-order bride.

Moderated by Lois Braverman, President Emeritus of the Ackerman Institute for the Family.

This event is presented by Aperture Foundation and the Photography Programs of Parsons School of Design at The New School.

Significant support for this program and the “Family” issue of Aperture magazine is provided by the Kanakia Foundation, the Anne Levy Charitable Trust, and the Reba Judith Sandler Foundation.

Further generous support is provided, in part, by the Board of Trustees and Members of Aperture Foundation, the William Talbott Hillman Foundation, Inc., the Grace Jones Richardson Trust, the Jane Smith Turner Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
