To commemorate its 50th anniversary, New York Magazine is calling on fifty artists to loan their creative vision for their covers. The magazine will begin debuting them in October and continue launching throughout the year.
We'll see works from the likes of Marilyn Minter to Barbara Kruger. Kruger’s “PRUMP/TUTIN” and Mel Bochner’s “OBLITERATE” covers are amongst some of the initial art works that we've seen previewed. It's also said that elsewhere in New York, artists ranging from KAWS to Jeff Koons will take part in a large scale sculpture exhibit.
“It seems so obvious,” says Hank Willis Thomas, the artist who made the ALL LI_ES MATTER poster seen below, “that many people are lying when they say ‘All lives matter.’ If you believe all lives matter, then you’d also acknowledge that black lives matter, and those same people would be marching alongside if they believed that.” Take a peek at some of the initial covers in the gallery!
