T’s 2018 Greats Issue celebrates six people who have inspired us to forge a different world of our own: #Solange, #AlessandroMichele, #GeorgeRRMartin, #CarrieMaeWeems, #ViggoMortensen and #BruceNauman. Each of them has created something singular, be it a performance or an aesthetic, and they have all, in some way, helped steer the cultural discourse. “Where would black artists, female artists, American artists, photographers, be without Carrie Mae Weems, whose groundbreaking photographic ‘Kitchen Table Series’ (1989-90) quite literally foregrounded the black female face?" writes writes T's editor in chief @HanyaYanagihara. "Where would science-fiction writers, fantasy writers, historical writers and television itself be without George R. R. Martin, whose 'A Song of Ice and Fire' books became the most sensational television series of all time, and also redefined the state of contemporary fandom?"
