About the Event

Join artist Laurence Philomène and our friends at VICE for a glittering night of conversation and cocktails celebrating the opening of Puberty.

Puberty is Philomène’s photographic memoir chronicling two years of the artist’s life as they underwent hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Fotografiska Members will have the opportunity to preview the exhibition before the public with a complimentary glass of bubbly from 6-7 PM. The evening will open with Philomene in conversation with photographers Elizabeth Renstrom, Senior Photo Editor of the New Yorker, and VICE’s Alyza Enrique, of VICE Media’s Gender Spectrum Project.
