Ursula No. 9 features a cover by Takesada Matsutani made especially for our new issue. For the cover story, Matsutani and Kate Van Houten are joined in conversation with Désirée Moorhead-Hayter to revisit their exhilarating early days in Paris working at legendary printmaker Stanley William Hayter’s Atelier 17.
Paris is a focal point throughout the issue, with rarely seen on-the-street photographs by Stanley Greene (1949–2017); poems by Marie Baléo and Barbara Chase-Riboud; new paintings by Camille Henrot; and Ksenia M. Soboleva’s consideration of fierce pussy at the Palais de Tokyo. Other features include a roundtable conversation with Homi K. Bhabha on the 1993 Whitney Biennial and its place in the present; Dan Fox on filmmaker Kenneth Anger (1927–2023); the founding documents of hip-hop; and more.
Each copy of Ursula No. 9 includes a limited-release poster of Henry Taylor’s painting I got brothers ALL OVA the world but they forget we’re related (2023). The poster commemorates Taylor’s solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth’s new Paris location opening on October 14, 2023.
