No paparazzi were harmed in the taking of this photo. Famed exes Sean Penn and Madonna posed together at the singer’s secretprojectrevolution party with Steven Klein held at the Gagosian Gallery on Tuesday in New York. The party helped launch Art ForFreedom, a global initiative to further freedom of expression.

“Freedom of speech. Freedom of choice. Freedom of experience. We live in a world where basic rights are under attack. Madonna and Steven Klein’s new film is a hard lens on the dystopian now; a call to join the revolution of love,” read the press notes.

The singer hopes to “show by the example of secretprojectrevolution my creative commitment to inspire change in the world through artistic expression. I hope my film and other submissions to Art for Freedom will be a call to action and give people a place to voice their own creative expression to help fight oppression, intolerance and complacency.”

You can check out the 17-minute film now on Madonna’s YouTube channel.
