Elephant #14: Elephant, Issue 14: The Arts & Visual Culture Magazine Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Elephant #14 ranges from Pieter Hugo, William Kentridge and Adel Abdessemed, and features Cape Town, which is a collage of art, short stories and conversations that combines intense beauty with flashes of horror amid a vibrant creative community.

Elephant— a quarterly magazine from the makers of Frame—focuses its keen eye on art and visual culture. Lately, creative individuals have been protesting against the corporate nature of things, often taking the initiative and setting up new independent ventures. Elephant looks at how its done. Elephant visits art and design studios, peers over shoulders, steps on graffiti artists toes, disturbs rehearsals, interrupts takes, rides fixed-gear bikes, and plays the latest computer games.

Elephants tone of voice is direct, sincere and multidisciplinary. Elephant believes its time for less cynicism and more encouragement for outbursts of spontaneity—think of those that gave birth to futurism, dadaism and surrealism.

Elephant is the first and only visually oriented art magazine that features over two hundred pages of high-quality, up-to-date, original creative material from all over the world.

What readers will find in each issue of Elephant:

Meetings: This section focuses on ideas, personalities, and cultures.

Research: Shines a light on forecasts, movements, and styles. "Studio Visits" includes chats in ateliers, garages, and back gardens.

Economies: Looks at how people started their businesses, from initial ideas to actual plans and bank loans.

Cities: Highlights creative cities around the globe, sharing images, characters, and special stories.
