    Jimmy Paulette and Taboo! In the bathroom

    Nan Goldin
    1991

    One of the 20th century’s most intimate image makers, American Artist Nan Goldin first started taking photographs as teenager in Boston in the 1960s, then in New York in the 1970s. Goldin’s developed a practice of making vivid portraits of those in her community. Often the bodies she documents are those repressed by hetero-normative society, living on its borders. Created during moments of intimacy, these candid images serve to memorialize a subculture, at the very moments of its radical destabilization by forces within and beyond art’s purview— the HIV epedemic, the Opoid crisis.

    This Fall, Medea has partnered with Nan Goldin on limited edition bags featuring “Trixie on a Ladder,” 1969 and “Jimmy Paulette and Taboo in the bathroom,” 1991. The bags printed with Goldin’s confidante and muses are a celebration of those who exceed bounds. “The figures in these images face frontally, a direct communication which matches the strength and sensual provocation specific to Medea,” note Giulia and Camilla Venturini, Medea founders. This special edition consists of 500 limited edition calfskin bags in sizes short, tall, grande, and venti.

    Available in store on September 6th Dover Street Market New York, London; Broken Arm Paris; and Selfridges London.
