For Visionaire No. 56 SOLAR (originally published in 2009), the NYC-based art and fashion pub developed a special UV-sensitive ink that changed black-and-white images to color when exposed to direct sunlight. Visionaire is reviving the SOLAR ink for a special collection of T-shirts in collaboration with Gap, which will be available at this years Frieze Art Fair, where Gap is operating an outdoor retail space designed by the architects Leong Leong.

The T-shirts feature artwork by Alex Katz, Yoko Ono, Richard Phillips, Ugo Rondinone, Peter Lindbergh, François Berthoud, and Roe Ethridge, some of which were published in Visionaire. When exposed to direct sunlight, the black-and-white prints on the tees turn to colorseen here in GIFs.
