Andrea Mary Marshall’s Pirelli-Inspired Calendar

by Daniel Chivu

Artist Andrea Mary Marshall’s latest show, “The Feminist Calendar 2016,” consists of 24 self-portraits produced in a double-sided calendar format and displayed on the walls of Garis & Hahn gallery on Bowery. Some of the images are decidedly X-rated while others are tame in comparison. We caught up with the always chic Marshall to get the scoop on her new work—and what she was wearing.

Where did you shoot all the photographs?
The images were shot in my studio and around my neighborhood in Bushwick. Except for the images with the Ferrari, which were shot in New Jersey. All of my self-portrait photographs are shot with a self-timer.

What was it like to have a gallery full of people seeing your naked photos hanging on the wall?
I feel comfortable with myself and my sexuality, and so I’m cool with it.

What gave you the idea to do a calendar?
I do love the vintage 1970s Pirelli calendars shot by Hans Feurer and Brian Duffy, but I felt a woman’s voice and perspective was largely absent from Pirelli’s history.

What are you working on next?
I am working on an exhibition for next year titled Superheroine, with curator Anne Huntington.

And what are you wearing tonight?
My dress is Anthony Vaccarello and my jewelry is Eva Fehren.
