We chose George Clooney as the focus of this issue, because he is Hollywood’s favorite leading man; and who better to interpret him than five of the preeminent female artists working today: Yayoi Kusama, Marilyn Minter, Catherine Opie, Karen Kilimnik, and Tracey Emin. Each of the artists approached the project very differently. We had to make the most of our time with Clooney, so we set up two adjacent studios during our day with him—one with Catherine Opie’s extremely heavy dark fabric and one with Yayoi Kusama’s intense polka dot sets. Quite a contrast!

We are excited to be partnering with Artsy, and thrilled that these provocative collaborations can help raise money for something as important as Save The Children’s Typhoon Haiyan Relief.
