Bill Hader ‘Barry’ cover:
Published for the first time in-full and in-depth a phone conversation Sally A. Edwards had with legend, Dennis Hopper over 20 years ago. You may wonder why print now? It’s a fascinating read. “There’s a calmness and honesty about Dennis Hopper discussing his work,” explains Sally. “His creating and how he made things happen is nothing short of inspiring. There’s an essence to the actuality of his work and the process that’s missing today. In conclusion, I believe the conversation will wake-up and elicit some inspired emotion.”
To celebrate Barbara Kruger’s grand show at London’s Serpentine, ‘THINKING OF
YOU. I MEAN ME.I MEAN YOU.’ we look at the artist’s iconic and often imitated work.
