Art’s power as a form of sociopolitical expression has never been so obvious. But as momentum grows in one of the largest women’s movements of the modern age, an emerging refrain now is that “it’s gone too far”.
In this issue of SLEEK:
- Photographer and dancer Kia LaBeija in conversation with writer Fariha Róisín on art, identity politics and the stigma around being a HIV-positive woman in America.
- An interview with Lubaina Himid, the winner of the 2017 Turner Prize.
- A discussion with Sophie Calle on the problematic increase in women’s art being read as autobiography.
- Photographer Carlota Guerrero’s profile of transgender women in Havana, Cuba.
- Kito Muñoz’s summer fashion menswear shoot, “Heavenly Creatures”.
- Fashion designer Molly Goddard on her new book, “Patty” — a collaboration with photographer Tim Walker.
- Acclaimed novelist and filmmaker Chris Kraus’s first column for SLEEK, on Kathy Acker and friendship.
