Polarising, surprising, loved and loathed: Unpacking the legacy of Helmut Newton’s photography

12 May 2022
Thursday 6.00pm
Jewish Museum of Australia

Join us for a special panel discussion hosted by VAULT in partnership with PHOTO 2022, International Festival of Photography at the Jewish Museum.

Taking the thematics of VAULT Sex Issue 38 and HELMUT NEWTON: In Focus as a starting point the panel discussion grapples with sexuality, expression, innovation and censorship within art and fashion as seen through the work of Helmut Newton as well as from the perspective of creatives working today. Moderated by VAULT Editor Alison Kubler, panellists include Jewish Museum of Australia Director & CEO Jessica Bram, Jewish Museum of Australia Senior Curator & Collections Manager Eleni Papavasileiou and photographer Justin Ridler.

Tickets to this special event include entry to the panel and HELMUT NEWTON: In Focus as well as light refreshments and a copy of VAULT Sex Issue 38!
