30. THE GAME
Visionaire 30 is not only a collection of art, it is also a game. Taking as our starting point the Louis Vuitton Challenge, the qualifying round of sailboat races for the America's Cup, we assembled teams of artists, photographers, and image makers to represent each of the participating countries-Australia, France, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States. Accordingly, there were seven versions. In the spirit of games, the issue came in the form of a puzzle in which sixteen cubes, when placed in the correct configuration, form one of six possible images. The cubes, along with a portfolio of all forty-two images, were packaged in a silk-screened Lucite case created for us by Louis Vuitton. Alex Katz and Mary Ellen Mark participated for the U.S.; Tracey Moffatt and Patricia Piccinini for Australia; Serge Lutens and Pierre Joseph for France; Maurizio Cattelan and Francesco Clemente for Italy; Yoshitomo Nara and Takashi Murakami for Japan; Pedro Almod—var and Juan Gatti for Spain; and Roman Signer and Pipilotti Rist for Switzerland.
