Mark Seliger & Radhika Jones

Vanity Fair: Oscar Night Sessions


About the Event

In celebration of the new book Vanity Fair: Oscar Night Sessions, join us for a conversation with photographer Mark Seliger and Vanity Fair’s Editor-In-Chief Radhika Jones.

For the past decade, legendary photographer Mark Seliger has set up an elaborate pop-up studio inside the annual Vanity Fair after-party on Oscar night, producing exquisite portraits of Hollywood’s A-list personalities in the immediate afterglow of cinema’s biggest event of the year. That studio serves as a private sanctum inside Vanity Fair’s vast party space in Beverly Hills. Once inside, celebrities are transported to a magical domain where they can express themselves for the camera in all their beauty and artistry, suspended for a few moments in a haven of serenity amid the buzz—on the buzziest night in Hollywood.

VANITY FAIR: OSCAR NIGHT SESSIONS gathers the best of these portraits, along with a foreword by Vanity Fair editor in chief Radhika Jones and an afterword by actor Alan Cumming, who sheds light on what it’s like to be in front of Seliger’s lens on the night of nights.

The event will include a book signing and Q&A. Books will be available for sale at the event.

All event tickets include museum admission to experience our exhibitions on view: Best in Show: Pets in Contemporary Photography and Frank Ockenfels 3: Introspection.
