SAINT LAURENT RETURNS TO ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH WITH AN EXHIBITION PLANNED AND CURATED BY MADONNA AND ANTHONY VACCARELLO, TO CELEBRATE THE RE-EDITION BY RIVE DROITE OF MADONNA’S GROUNDBREAKING BOOK SEX.

UPON ITS RELEASE IN 1992, MADONNA’S BOOK BECAME A CONTROVERSIAL SENSATION AROUND THE GLOBE, DUE TO ITS EROTIC CONTENT AND LIBERATED VIEWS OF SEXUAL SELF-EXPRESSION.

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 IN A TEMPORARY BEACHFRONT BOX BUILT ESPECIALLY FOR THE OCCASION.
