Visionaire: the ultimate
art and fashion publication
Posted on 1st Mar 2019
Riferimento per la cultura visiva, questa antologia presenta venticinque anni di arte iconica, di moda e di design tratti da Visionaire, la celebre pubblicazione di matrice newyorkese.
Reference for the visual culture, this anthology showcases twenty-five years of iconic art, fashion, and design from Visionaire, the renowned New York-based publication.
The story reports: “ Two art school friends met a teenage model back in 1980s NYC. By 1991, they had embarked on an experiment-turned-adventure. Visionaire has taken the shape of everything from a leather-bound portfolio to 12-inch vinyl records to a collection of dolls. Placed in critical context with intimate reflections by contributors, a prized collection of 1,453 images selected from 65 issues produced by an astounding cast of artists, photographers and designers, delivers a rich panorama of over two decades of media and fashion revolution from the perspective of independent publishing. Original commentary by cofounders Cecilia Dean and James Kaliardos provides unprecedented access to a pivotal New York scene and the creative life behind Visionaire as it anticipated and shaped the fashion zeitgeist, propelling emerging voices and exceptional content while challenging the limits of print media with every issue. This volume delivers an essential piece of contemporary fashion and media history and traces the shape of things to come.”
