‘Crossings’, the November 2018 Square Print Sale, presented by Magnum Photos and Aperture Foundation, brings together a selection of over 100 images by international artists, to explore perspectives on transition and transformation in photography.
Magnum Photos and Aperture have a long-standing, shared history, spanning many collaborations on publications and events through the decades. For the second time, Magnum Photos has invited a roster of artists published by Aperture to participate in the project alongside Magnum’s own photographers, to visually explore a common theme through both classic and contemporary artistic practices. The project creates an unprecedented visual dialogue, spanning depictions of physical crossings from one side to another—a road, a river, a border, an ocean—and the personal crossings that manifest in growth, revolt, mutation and self-realisation, the voyages of the mind that have the power to spark change and transformation. Shared themes emerge across the images, from an examination of contemporary shifts in our understanding of selfhood and identity, to more macroscopic topics such as migration. In this way, ‘Crossings’ asks both literal and metaphorical questions about the human ability to move, transform and build connections. The resulting selection of works is at the crossroads of documentary and conceptual practices. Celebrating the singular authorship of each artist, the curation encapsulates the diversity of practices found within photography. Spanning decades of artistic production, ‘Crossings’ is a testament to the major visual and thematic threads that, together, create our visual culture.
For five days only, these images are available as signed, or estate-stamped, 6×6” prints. For the first time this year, the prints are also exhibited at the Aperture Gallery in New York, in a special exhibition hosted by Airbnb Magazine for the duration of the sale, in a show open to the public from October 27th.
