Aperture presents their sixth annual Summer Open Exhibition: Delirious Cities. The show features twenty-three artists, from fourteen different countries, focused on photography, video and other lens-based media. The exhibit is based on the architect, Rem Koolhaas’s 1978 manifesto “Delirious New York.” From the press release, “The exhibition considers how the city is an ever-changing landscape, a laboratory of identity, a place of contested freedom, and a supermarket of desires.”

“Delirious Cities,” is curated by a guest jury, including: Brendan Embser, Matthew Leifheit, Chiara Bardelli Nonino, Azu Nwagbogu, and Guadalupe Rosales.

Featured Artists:
Sara Abbaspour / Laura Barron / Rydel Cerezo / Alex Huanfa Cheng / Rose Marie Cromwell / Esther Hovers / Mateo Gómez García / Délio Jasse / Lilly Lulay / Noritaka Minami / Alice Quaresma / Adam Pape / Carlo Rusca / Josh Schaedel / Michele Sibiloni / Chanell Stone / Leonard Suryajaya / Dustin Thierry / Bryan Thomas / Sally Tosti / Shelli Weiler / Yana Wernicke / Hal Wilsdon
