As part of our sixtieth anniversary celebration, Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with our partners, presents the exhibition Delpire & Co., featuring a half century of achievement in the life and career of visionary French publisher, editor, and curator Robert Delpire.

Over the past sixty years, the eyes and instincts of Robert Delpire have shaped much of the world’s understanding of photography. A prolific publisher and exhibition organizer, with a razor-sharp comprehension of the graphic arts, Delpire has had a defining hand in the careers of many of the master photographers of recent history.
Delpire & Co. (Delpire et Cie, in the original French) was one of the highlights of the Rencontres d’Arles, France, in summer 2009, and was subsequently given a major presentation at la Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, from October 2009 to January 2010 with the continued support of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès.
The exhibition showcases Delpire’s rise to prominence in the world of photography through his pioneering and seminal work in magazine and book publishing, films, curatorship, and advertising for the past fifty years.

Delpire & Co. is divided among four venues, creating altogether a comprehensive exhibition on Delpire’s many initiatives. Howard Greenberg Gallery and Pace/MacGill Gallery also have exhibitions concurrently on view in celebration of Robert Delpire’s life and work.
