Supreme and Nan Golding will launch collection
The famous American photographer Nan Goldin, along with the street clothes brand Supreme, joined together to launch the collaboration. Together, the creative duo will release a capsule collection, which will include the most famous works of photographer Nana Goldina. “The works of Nan are real and painful, the things and processes that she documented in the 1970s and the 1980s were marginal,” outlawed. “She caught the time, for us this collaboration is an opportunity to celebrate diversity in all its senses, they say in Supreme.
For prints on T-shirts and skateboards used archival photographs of Nana Goldin. On prints, you can see the images of Kim, the transgender artist of the Folie Berger variety show in Paris.
“I did it for the children,” Goldin says of the collaboration, “I want to see how the teenagers ride my pictures and wear them on their clothes.” I think people have become too conservative, especially millennials – as if the 1960s never happened So I like the idea that these photos are integrated into real life. “
Also for prints used a photograph of two drag-queen, Misty and Jimmy Polett, made in a taxi in 1991. This photo is one of the most famous in Nan’s portfolio. The collection Supreme and Nana Goldina will also include umbrellas, hoodies and skateboards: on each of them will be depicted a photo from the Goldin archives. “I can not wait to put on the hoodie,” – briefly comments on the cooperation with Supreme herself Nan.
The collection of Nan Goldin x Supreme will be on sale on the site of the brand from March 29.
Nan Goldin is one of the key characters in the New York art scene for the past forty years. It became famous in the 1970s, creating a series of very personal, intimate portraits of the New York bohemian get-together. The heroes of her photos are it-girls, transvestites, prostitutes, drag-quint, artists, writers, dancers. Works Goldin today are in the collections of the Center Pompidou in Paris, London’s Tate Modern and New York’s MoMa. In 2017, Nan Goldin removed for the cover art number of the Ukrainian Vogue actress Chloe Sevigny. “I first learned about Goldin when I was in school: I saw her pictures of Jamie King on the cover of The New York Times Magazine. I remember that she literally devoured the eyes of her work. Intimacy, alarming and frightening, which Goldin managed to catch, – then there was no one who would be like her, “- says the photographer Chloe Sevigny.
