Lipstick Flavor: A Contemporary Art Story with Photography

Lipstick Flavor, edited by Jerome Sans and Marla Hamburg Kennedy, creates a visual panoramic story of Lipstick. Fully illustrated, it is conceived as a kind of magazine or rhapsody without beginning or end; the pages unfurl a new history of the relationship between contemporary art and lipstick through a visual story of how this ultimate feminine symbol with its particular flavor has come to pervade our culture and its imagery. Bringing together over 40 international artists including Nobuyoshi Araki, Marina Abramovi, Maurizio Cattelan, Alex Prager, Michalene Thomas and more. Sublimed, made up eroticized, fetishized… these traces of contemporary cult accoutrement have become an ironic element of contemporary values.
