Madonna celebrates 30th anniversary of ‘Sex’ book at Miami’s Art Basel

Madonna will ring in three decades of Sex at Miami Art Basel later this month.

The pop star’s erotic coffee table from 1992 Order is set to receive a 30th anniversary reissue during the art show courtesy of Yves Saint Laurent and New York-based publisher Callaway. The new edition of Sex will be 800 pages long and will come with its own art exhibition curated by Madonna and YSL creative director Anthony Vaccarello.

“I want to put you in a trance. ……………YSL Presents SEX-Re-Release…Miami Nov 29 – Dec 4,” Madonna shared on Instagram alongside a photo of herself with red hair while staring in the mirror while wearing a nude corset and tan fur coat.A separate post of the event invitation confirms that the exhibition will be held at Yves Saint Laurent’s Rive Droite project.

With photography by the famous Stephen Meisel, Madonna originally released Sex on Oct. 21, 1992, as a sort of visual companion to her fifth studio album Erotica. The LP contained sexually charged singles such as the title track “Deeper and Deeper”, “Bad Girl” and “Fever” and ultimately bowed at No. 2 on Billboard 200.

The book, meanwhile, caused quite a stir when it spent three weeks at No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller List and became—according to her 2002 biography by Andrew Morton—the best-selling coffee table book of all time.

Last month, Madonna reflected he Sex‘s cultural influence in a separate Instagram post, writing in part: “I also wrote about my sexual fantasies and shared my point of view on sexuality in an ironic way. I spent the next few years being interviewed by narrow-minded people who tried to shame myself into empowering myself as a woman I was called a whore, a witch, a heretic and the devil.

“Now Cardi B can sing about her WAP. Kim Kardashian can grace the cover of any magazine with her bare ass, and Miley Cyrus can come in like a wrecking ball,” Her Madgesty continued. “You’re welcome bi-es.”
