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.

Inside the Issue

In April, 2023, the staff of Ursula magazine asked the artist Takesada Matsutani if he would be interested in creating a new artwork specially for the cover of our fall/winter edition. Matsutani, 86, has lived and worked in Paris since the late 1960s, but he came of age as an artist in Osaka, Japan, as a member of the avant-garde Gutai movement and he has long worked in highly experimental ways with printmaking and artist’s books.
