Week of Wonders

Altered Appearances

This show rounds up photographic works from just about every big name in contemporary art from the past 20 years. Among the many pieces on view are stills from Matthew Barney’s “Cremaster” films, Andreas Serrano’s portrait of members of the Ku Klux Klan, Gregory Crewdson’s cinematic narratives and Barbara Ess’s haunting pinhole camera pictures.

Black Mirror

For this year’s Summer Open, Aperture’s annual open-call exhibition, they asked photographers to consider the ways in which current reality might echo outlandish narratives of science fiction. The title Black Mirror is borrowed from the 2011 British television series of the same name, which imagines a dystopian near future—a Twilight Zone for the age of the smartphone.
