Musée Magazine Issue No. 12 - Controversy
Musée’s 12th issue showcases artists that deal with a wide range of issues. Each piece resonates with the current state of the world on multiple levels that defy traditional categorization, for example, Barbara Kruger. The issue also features Gordon Parks, whose photo essay “The Restraints: Open and Hidden” studies segregation, Robert Mapplethorpe, the master photographer, who explores homosexuality and erotism, and JR, whose work is displayed at Ellis Island.
Also included are interviews with Edmund Clark, Jess Dugan, Joel-Peter Witkin, Tomas Van Houtryve, Kay Chernush, Ken Gonzales-Day, Neil DaCosta, Dina Goldstein, Erik Ravelo, Edward Lachman and Adam Harvey. Fred Ritchin and Catherine J. Morris are the industry insiders while Sebastian Junger shares his perspective as a journalist. Guest curator Marilyn Minter provides work from Sandy Kim and Hank Willis Thomas. “Controversy” also spotlights work by Anthony Fernandez, Richard Mosse, Jen Davis and Thomas Struth.
This issue also presents the work of 22 emerging artists.
