Xiu Xiu + J. Morrison
Art T-Shirt Subscription

Xiu Xiu’s singer Jamie Stewart and artist
J. Morrison will collaborate on an ultra limited edition handmade art t-shirt collection.

The shirts will be available as a special 12 piece year long subscription (which includes 13th subscription only bonus shirt) or as single shirts ordered per month.

Each month the shirts will commemorate a figure who has influenced the artists. Part-rock shirt and part-art shirt, the shirts will creatively honor the person’s name with a new illustration and hand made type.

David Wojnarowicz

-East Village artist, visionary, rebel

"I'm beginning to believe that one of the last frontiers left for radical gesture is the imagination.

These fantasies give me distance from my outrage for a few seconds. They give me momentary comfort. Sexuality defined in images gives me comfort in a hostile world. They give me strength."
