“I loved being scared as a kid. I loved the darker side of humanity. That was in my brain, even from a very early age. I was always thinking, ‘What could be the scariest outcome of this situation?’ My cousins and I were kind of raised in a pack together—all girls. They always wanted to be princesses. I always wanted to be a witch. Or a killer.” The author Gillian Flynn, who wrote the screenplay for the new Steve McQueen thriller “Widows,” out this week, talks to Christopher Bollen about the origins of her attraction to mystery and horror.

@arnold_daniel captured scenes from the installation of Andy Warhol’s Cow Wallpaper at the @whitneymuseum’s #Warhol retrospective “From A to B and Back Again.” We’re told it’s the first time the museum has ever allowed a photographer to document the mounting of a show. When the wallpaper first debuted at Leo Castelli Gallery in 1996 one dealer famously burst out, “They’re super pastoral! They’re ridiculous! They’re blazingly bright and vulgar!” And now they’re in a museum. #warholxwhitney

“The biggest misconception about Narcissister is that it is mere spectacle, devoid of deeper underpinnings. Also, that I am a man.” New York–based performance artist Narcissister, subject of the new documentary ‘Narcissister Organ Player,’ has explored all sides of female provocation with her trademark masks, wigs, and merkins. But what’s a normal day for the art world enigma? We trailed her to find out.

“I’ll be the first one to tell you I don’t have a concrete understanding of everything that’s going on, which is why I love social media as a means to collectively figure it out. I’ll DM people, like, ‘I know that I should call a senator, but I don’t know which one or how or how many times.’” Kimberly Drew is an independent curator and former social media manager for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She's one of six mobilized New Yorkers who told us how they really feel about the political moment we find ourselves in. Photographed by @quillemons. Styled by @malaikamc. Hair @rubi_jones.

"What does the world look like without borders? What does the world look like without prisons and detention centers? We can’t just be reactionary. We need big thinking, big visions, and a radical imagination of what’s possible. Give it language, give it imagery, give it music, give it a feel. That’s what’s giving me hope.” Sonia Guiñansaca is a poet and managing director of @culturestrike, a national arts organization working at the intersection of cultural justice issues. She is one of six mobilized New Yorkers who told us how they really feel about their activism in this political moment. Photographed by @quillemons. Styled by @malaikamc. Hair @rubi_jones.

"My father has been through the system a number of times and had to wait because he didn’t have people in his life with money for bail. My father is a black man, and today one in three black men will be incarcerated at some point in their lives. Mass incarceration isn’t just a policy matter—it implicates all of us.” Amanda Lawson is the founding director of  the Dollar Bail Brigade, an organization of 811 volunteers committed to paying the one-dollar bails of prisoners across New York City. She's one of six mobilized New Yorkers who told us how they really feel about their activism in this political moment. Photographed by @quillemons. Styled by @malaikamc. Hair @rubi_jones.

“The moment I started focusing on women’s wear, Shayne [Oliver, of @hoodbyair] sat me down and was like, ‘You come from hanging out with all these Spanish girls, and you need to start embodying that. Embrace your inner cha-cha.” @raulzepol on how his label @luar became a fully realized (and @cfda-nominated) ready-to-wear brand. Photographed by @remilamande. Styled by @raulzepol.
