After Nyne Magazine are drawing the editorial year to a close with the launch our second ‘Women in Art’ issue.
The magazine is premiering in the reading room of Frieze Art Fair London – ahead of being available in retailers – with copies available during the duration of the fair which takes place in Regent’s Park until October 7th.
Our lead feature is a celebration of the work of photographer Marilyn Stafford, who, now in her mid-nineties, is still setting about changing perceptions of women in the industry.
This is a cause close to Marilyn’s heart; two years ago she founded the Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award, which is granted annually to a professional female photographer. Marilyn recognises the importance of encouraging female voices in the photographic industry, and seeks to do so while challenging the status quo of male dominance.
Elsewhere in the issue our U.S correspondents Constance Victory and Jennifer Sauer discuss and women in the Catholic imagination and Anni Albers, respectively, while Lizzy Vartanian Collier explores the Sarah Lucas survey at New York’s New Museum.
We think this Women in Art issue is our finest issue yet, celebrating female artists and writers, and the strength at the heart of the feminine mystique in all of its permutations.
It’s also our final issue of the year, and we’d love to thank everyone who has been with us on this amazing After Nyne journey for the past year.
