122: The Magazine “Visionaire” A complete run, nos. 1-57, and selected individual issues of this influential and genre-bending periodical founded in 1991 by Stephen Gan, Cecilia Dean, and James Kaliardos, out of a small West Village apartment. At the intersection of fashion, contemporary art, photography, design, and culture, "Visionaire" is a series of monographic issues, each of which stands as a work of art on its own, defying categorization and formal boundaries. Karl Lagerfeld, John Baldessari, and Steven Klein have been guest artists; guest editors include fashion designers Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garçons), Tom Ford (Gucci), Hedi Slimane (Dior Homme), and Riccardo Tisci (Givenchy). Other artists and designers contributing work include Barbara Kruger, Shirin Neshat, Yoko Ono, Vik Muniz, Maurizio Cattelan, Marina Abramovic, Bruce Weber, Nan Goldin, Bill Cunningham, Mary Ellen Mark, Mario Testino, Edward Gorey, Philippe Starck, Steven Meisel, Inez & Vinoodh, Alexander McQueen, and Vivenne Westwood, among others. Famed for its radically lavish design, “Visionaire” is as much a series of original multiples as a periodical as such, housed in wildly differing and elaborate high-style boxes and cases (metal, molded plastic, vinyl, plexiglass, and wood, as well as cloth), and extensive incorporation of original fabrics, fur, ceramics and other materials in its contents.
