Aperture Gallery Presents:
Invasion 68 Prague
Photographs by Josef Koudelka
This unprecedented exhibition, coproduced with Magnum, and coinciding with the publication of the Aperture book of the same title, presents Josef Koudelka's remarkable body of work taken during the Soviet-led invasion of Prague in 1968 that brought to an end the short-lived political freedom in Czechoslovakia that came to be known as the Prague Spring. The show will feature large-scale prints, including many images that have never been seen before. Opening on the same day from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Pace/Mac Gill Gallery (32 East 57th Street) is a companion show presenting vintage and recent prints of some of Koudelka’s most iconic images from this work.
