Her words carry us through the film, illustrated by lesser-seen photos and videos and interspersed with interview cameos from those who knew her best—the actress Mita Ungaro; her son Sean Ferrer—but it’s her granddaughter Emma Ferrer who delivers the most poignant examination of one of history’s most famous women.

As Americans decide if it’s time to reach for a reset button of our own, this issue includes a special report on the closing days of the 2020 campaign. “On Nov. 3 (or, hopefully, soon after), we will finally get an answer to the question of what these past four discombobulating years have meant,” writes TIME’s national political correspondent Molly Ball. “It is a decision not about what policy proposals to pursue but about what reality we collectively decide to inhabit.” The artwork on the cover is by Shepard Fairey, whose work includes two prior TIME covers. “Even though the subject in the portrait knows there are additional challenges to democracy during a pandemic,” Fairey says of the image, the person is determined to use their “voice and power by voting.”

Logan Hicks Presents “The Story of My Life” on NYC’s Bowery Wall. All summer, we have enjoyed a plethora of new outdoor murals throughout our five boroughs, but none is more hotly anticipated than the next artist up on the Bowery Wall. Artist Logan Hicks, known for his intricate stencil murals, will be creating a seventy-foot-long mural entitled “Story of My Life.” He began the project by inviting friends, family and fans to Greene Street in Soho one afternoon, where he asked them to simply walk down the street. Perched high on a ladder, he took hundreds (or was it thousands) of photographs that he would ultimately composite into one. The images include people who have most influenced his life during his ten years in New York, now clearly in view within his mural.

A recent surge of interest in Invader’s work can be attributed to the playfulness and nostalgia embedded in his work, which attests to his objective of “leaving a print not only on the streets but also on the minds.” The intention of permanency demanded by the technical application of Invader’s street mosaics allows for a concrete connection between his arcade-utopia and reality, literally invading our space with his creations and perpetually altering its form.

“Art is an attempt to try and understand our own contemporary situation through making images that are completely personal, while also addressing our social context.” -Robert Longo
The Brooklyn born artist, Robert Longo (b. 1953), a key figure in the Pictures Generation movement in New York in the late seventies and early eighties, is known for the powerful images he produces which are often engaged with political, environmental and social issues. Since the beginning of Longo’s artistic career he has successfully sparked the collective imagination with imagery that speaks to the specific historical moment in which it was created. Although a summary of Robert Longo’s richly complex and expansive body of work that he has created throughout his lifetime goes far beyond five basic facts, here are the key elements of this significantly influential artist’s professional timeline that we hope will shed light on theoretical gears at work in his aesthetic project.
Considering the people whose portraits Nancy Ellison has shot, it’s no surprise that she has a fund of stories to tell. Sting. Sharon Stone. Jack Nicholson. Mick Jagger. Grace Jones. They’re not all in Nancy Ellison: Nancy - Off Color, the show with which Taglialatella Galleries will celebrate the grand opening Thursday through Jan. 17 of Taglialatella Galleries Due, its new second space in Via Bice. Whether or not the subjects are juicy, the stories always are.
Last month, Taglialatella Galleries hosted an opening reception at its flagship New York City location for Burton Morris’ “Painting Playboy,” the latest in the artist’s Icon Series. “Usually my message has been based on what is going on in pop culture,” the artist told Playboy ahead of the exhibition’s opening.
The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Playboy is likely naked ladies, not art. But the magazine’s historical ties to the art world—specifically within the realm of pop art—are actually quite rich, with artists from Keith Haring and James Rosenquist to Patrick Nagel and Salvadore Dalí (who once posed for the rag in 1973) having created work for Playboy‘s pages. Founder Hugh Hefner, who passed away in September, was a cartoonist himself before launching his empire in 1953, and Art Paul, Playboy’s founding art director and the man behind the iconic bunny logo, commissioned tons of illustrators and artists to contribute works to the publication throughout his 30-year career. Now, Playboy, currently helmed by Hefner’s son, Cooper, can add another artist collaboration to its roster: Burton Morris.
Burton Morris is many things—an American pop artist in the tradition of fellow Pittsburgh native and Carnegie Mellon alum Andy Warhol, a former advertising art director and a lifelong devotee of comic superheroes, which he taught himself to draw at the age of three, when a well-intentioned attempt to imitate Tarzan on the monkey bars put the budding artist in a full-body cast for two and a half months. And come this fall, Morris can add “Playboy artist” to the list. On November 9, the artist will debut an original collection of Playboy-inspired work at Taglialatella gallery in New York City.
