On July 25 Aperture hosted a special book launch at The Times Square EDITION in partnership with Jack’d to celebrate the launch of Notes towards Becoming a Spill, the first monograph by multimedia artist Shikeith.

The intimate celebration featured an evening of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres alongside a lively DJ set by BMAJR. As part of the event, a newly released limited-edition silkscreen print by Shikeith was installed for viewing, alongside complimentary editions of Aperture magazine.

In attendance to celebrate were curator and critic Antwaun Sargent, Aperture’s executive director Sarah Meister, Aperture Board Trustee Michael Hoeh, designer Rush Jackson, Ian Bradley, Prince Adams, Jahvaris Fulton, Jakeem Powell, Angel Glasby, and many more. Shikeith called the gathering “a truly lovely night.”
