Madonna released her most controversial work to date, “Sex,” a coffee table book that shook pop culture and the world with its explicit images, in 1992.
Now, 30 years later, she’s taking a trip down memory lane by commemorating the occasion in grand style.
According to the Daily Mail UK, the “Like A Virgin” singer collaborated with Anthony Vaccarello, Saint Laurent’s creative director, to co-curate an exhibit at Art Basel in Miami Beach.
Fans can see the exhibition for free from November 29 to December 4 at Saint Laurent’s beachfront gallery; however, reports state that it is open to anyone over the age of 18.
After all, the 64-year-old old’s book is quite explicit, and one can only assume that the exhibit will follow suit.
The gallery will feature large-format images from the book taken by the aforementioned photographers. Furthermore, according to reports, the exhibit will include photographs by Steven Meisel and Fabien Baron. Fans can also bring souvenirs from the merch shop, which includes t-shirts, totes, and other items.
Collectors should act quickly because Madonna’s reissued copies of “Sex” are in short supply.
Only 800 copies were printed, and some of them will be signed by the Queen of Pop herself and auctioned off for charity.
According to Wonderland Magazine, the funds will go to Madonna’s Raising Malawi charity.
Raising for Malawi was founded in 2006 by the singer to help orphans and vulnerable children who lack critical resources such as education, medical care, food and shelter, and psychosocial support.
Madonna has been an active supporter of this charity and has launched a number of projects since its inception. According to its website, the pop star has established scholarships and programs to empower children, which were funded by the proceeds of her 2008 documentary “I Am Because We Are.”
Madonna shared the exciting news on her social media accounts, posting several pictures of herself in a corset and captioning the post with lyrics from her 1992 song “Erotica.”
Fans are overjoyed to learn that the “Vogue” singer is working on another project.
A fan commented:
“Don’t you think it’s time for the Sex world tour? Just imagine a setlist with all your songs.”
Another fan expressed disappointment that the book would not be widely available to everyone:
“Only available for a small amount of wealthy people. We need wide release, Mom.”
Another one added:
“I hope it contains new pictures of you as you are right now. People need to see that sex is not over when you’re 40-50 or 60. Sex is for everyone. That’d be as transgressive as its first release.”
