Sale Overview

For nearly seventy years, the not-for-profit organization Aperture has championed photography as an essential art addressing urgent issues and questions in culture and society. Aperture’s flagship magazine, books, digital resources and content, and public programming serve as a platform for artists and common ground for global audiences.

Christie’s is partnering with Aperture for the second year in a row in an online auction of special photographs, artist portfolios, and editions featuring the work of both established and emerging artists. All sales benefit Aperture’s not-for-profit services and activities, with proceeds supporting general operations and the purchase of new permanent headquarters in New York. Artists featured in this sale include Sharon Core, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Nan Goldin, Lyle Ashton Harris, Robert Mapplethorpe, David Benjamin Sherry, and Stephen Tayo, among others. All works were generously donated by artists, collectors, gallerists, and Aperture patrons.
