Modern Matter #4

Modern Matter’s fourth issue, Made In USA, is a collaboration with London’s ICA gallery, created on the eve of a major retrospective by the New York-based art collective, the Bernadette Corporation (making it the first independent magazine to act as an ICA partner). Its cover star is the iconic American actress, Chloë Sevigny; the issue’s content is themed, in part, around the dual ideals of Art and America, and includes an exploration of the New York art scene.

Sevigny has collaborated with both the Bernadette Corporation and with the issue’s cover photographer Mark Borthwick for a number of years, notably starring in the Corporation’s film Get Rid of Yourself, and being shot by Borthwick for several iconic magazine spreads in the mid-nineties. In this exclusive shoot, those original – and memorable – images are introduced into a visual conversation with new material created for Modern Matter: the result is an intimate exploration of collective, dialogue and creative collaboration.

Made In USA also contains:

A re-staging of the archives of the photographer MARK BORTHWICK, featuring long-term collaborators CHLOE SEVIGNY, RITA ACKERMANN and Gang Gang Dance’s LIZZI BOUGATSOS.

A history of SEMIOTEXT(E), with SYLVERE LOTRINGER, HEDI EL KHOLTI and CHRIS KRAUS.

Art & America: A New York Story, featuring GEDI SIBONY, RAFAEL ROZENDAAL, MAURIZIO CATTELAN, MAX SNOW, MATHEW CERLETTY, BJARNE MELGAARD, ERIK FOSS & more.

A visual essay by RITA ACKERMANN, comprised of her memories of working with the BERNADETTE CORPORATION.

Spring/Summer 2013 menswear by ANDREA SPOTORNO, featuring RAF SIMONS, SAINT LAURENT BY HEDI SLIMANE and PRADA.

Neo Campari, an original artwork by VICTOR BOULLET.
