This year we approached the art of the interview with a multimedia lens. Whether we sparked up a conversation with the founders of Adult Magazine in the bathtub at The Standard, or took a private tour through the Gagosian Gallery with the artist, our editors got up close and personal with our subjects to make most out of these peculiar moments.
In Bath with Adult Magazine Founders
In the bath with Sarah Nicole Prickett and Berkeley Poole to talk about nakedness, vacations, quietude, and illumination — and of course eroticism and their upcoming ADULT second issue. If New York is not the best place to bathe, it is the best place to feel sexy.
"I’m very relaxed in water generally. A bath or a swimming pool at night."
Private Tour with Blair Thurman
Artist Blair Thurman was kind enough to walk us through his first exhibition at Gagosian Gallery. His pieces have so many layers of emotional memories that he felt the need to sketch on cocktail napkins with a sharpie to make sure we got his point. We kept all the napkins.
"A DYNAMIC FRIEND IS A FRIEND WHO ACTS UPON YOU."
Private Gallery Tour with Justin Lowe and Jonah Freeman
We had a private tour of the artist's second show at Marlborough Gallery where the duo reappropriated the gallery space and created a whole new world: half labyrinth, half initiatic path.
"THE MORE YOU LOOK, THE MORE THERE IS. IT'S ALL THERE FOR YOU IF YOU WANT TO DIG DEEP."
