In dark days, it’s important to remember that heroes — modern iconoclasts who speak out for dignity, who break glass ceilings with fists raised and who meet criticism with action and authority, wit and humor — still walk amongst us. If you’re in London this month, you can walk amongst them, too.
Lauren Tamaki illustrated a series of Modern Icons for Riposte Magazine’s #7 issue, on display at Ace Hotel London’s window box gallery until February 13. Bjork, the Broad City girls, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Joan Didion, Laverne Cox, Malala, Michelle Obama, Rei Kawakubo, Serena Williams, Shami Chakrabarti, Tilda Swinton and Yayoi Kusama are all represented. Bow down.
