Madonna curating Miami Art Basel exhibition celebrating 30th anniversary of her Sex book… will re-issue 800 copies of the XXX tome

Seven-time Grammy winner Madonna teamed up with Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello to co-curate an exhibition celebrating the 30th anniversary of her Sex coffee table book during Art Basel Miami Beach.

Rive Droite re-issued 800 copies of the 64-year-old Queen of Pop’s groundbreaking XXX tome – some of which will be signed and eventually auctioned off to benefit her Raising Malawi charity.

The exhibit will feature large-format photographs by Steven Meisel and Fabien Baron, and coinciding T-shirts and totes will be on sale from November 29-December 4 at Saint Laurent in Miami’s Design District.

Back in 1992, Michigan-born Madge (last name Ciccone) earned the equivalent of $38.6M in today’s dollars for the 132-page aluminum-covered book, which went on to sell 1.5M copies worldwide.

While controversial at the time, Sex is now well-regarded for its social and cultural impact and is considered a bold post-feminist, LGBT-beloved work.

The Finally Enough Love singer was arguably S&M’s first cultural ambassador thanks to the sadomasochistic images, softcore pornography, and simulations of sexual acts.

The Sex book was released the day after Madonna’s equally-kinky fifth studio album Erotica, and Warner Music issued the ‘banned’ 12in, three-track picture disc version of the single in honor of its 30th anniversary on October 21. 

The twice-divorced mother-of-six is also still in pre-production on her self-directed Universal Pictures biopic titled Little Sparrow.

On August 26, the gossip site DeuxMoi shared leaked texts indicating that Sparrow has been a ‘nightmare production’ because of the ‘script and constant changes’ and ‘might not happen’ because it’s ‘costing a ton of money.’

Madonna co-wrote the script with Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody, who was later replaced by Independent Spirit Award-winning screenwriter Erin Wilson (The Girl on the Train, Secretary).

Three-time Emmy winner Julia Garner has been offered the plum part – according to Variety – while Julia Fox remains the frontrunner to play the self-made superstar’s longtime gal pal Debi Mazar.

Madonna previously helmed two dismally-reviewed box office bombs – Filth and Wisdom in 2008, and W.E. in 2011.
