Bringing SEX Back
Madonna‘s groundbreaking SEX book is being reissued by Saint Laurent Rive Droite thirty years after its original release.
In 1992, the book became a controversial sensation around the globe, due to its erotic content and liberated views of sexual self-expression. Envisioned by one of the most influential musicians of all time, SEX contained imagery by Steven Meisel as well as written text by Madonna.
To mark the book’s lasting impact and special anniversary, Madonna and Anthony Vaccarello decided to revive its contents for the first time ever in the context of an ephemeral exhibition. The photographs by Steven Meisel will be on view as large-format prints in a temporary beachfront box built especially for the occasion in Miami to coincide with Art Basel.
Saint Laurent’s bespoke re-issue of the book is limited to 800 copies published by Callaway, New York, and will be available starting nov 29th. Signed copies will also be auctioned to benefit Raising Malawi.
