Musée Magazine Issue No. 13 - Women
The wait is over! Paying homage to women artists, we are proud to present issue 13, our biggest issue yet. With thirty-nine established photographers, and fifty-five emerging artists, Women, is an extensive and expansive celebration of sundry perspectives and aesthetic concerns. Seducing us towards the world of femininity, Collier Shorr’s salient portrait of a bare-skinned woman evokes mystery and intrigue. This issue features artwork from feminist activists; the Guerrilla Girls, who use their provoking graphic-art to advocate against discrimination towards women in the art world, as well as the eloquent and poetic work of Sara VanDerBeek. From Zanele Muholi’s stark self-portraits to Yoon Ji Seon’s exquisitely stitched self-portraits, this issue celebrates the many diverse perspectives of women through their art. As Ann Hamilton puts it best; “my experience is as a female body. I think that has everything to do with the work, even if it’s not the subject of the work.”
