The Christmas List: Visionaire No. 57: 2010… by Visionaire
Founded in 1991 as a collection of artwork and images hand-assembled by a group of friends in a one-room apartment in New York City, Visionaire has since grown into one of the most highly sought-after fashion and art publications in the world. The New Yorker has characterized Visionaire magazine as “a creative playground for leading designers, artists, photographers and thinkers,” adding “it’s a gallery in print. A cabinet of irresistible curiosities A daring iconoclast dressed to thrill.”
For this latest issue, 52 curators Louise Bourgeois, Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Mario Testino, Tilda Swinton and Marc Jacobs) have selected seven artists. Each artist contributes one image for a total of 365 images by 365 different artists, which are assembled as an electronic calendar that displays one image for each day of the year. This is Visionaire’s first electric plug-in issue featuring art on a high-definition screen. It is also one of their most useful and giftworthy issues!
Visionaire 57: 2010 is produced in collaboration with Smart, in anticipation of the Smart electric car to be launched in 2010, and as a part of Smart’s ongoing support of urban creativity. See the fabulous video here.
