This event is free for students with ID and Aperture Members at the $50 level and above.

Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the Photography Program at Parsons School of Design of The New School, is pleased to present a conversation between artist Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa and scholar Tina Campt. Join us for a night discussing One Wall a Web, Wolukau-Wanambwa’s first monograph, which recently won the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation First PhotoBook Prize. One Wall a Web consists of three chapters comprising two bodies of work. The book interweaves Wolukau-Wanambwa’s own photographs, a sequence of archival images, and two text collages, which together confront the normality of racist, classed, and gendered violence in American life.
