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. Elephantlooks at how it's done. Elephantvisits 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. Elephant's tone of voice is direct, sincere, and multidisciplinary. Elephantbelieves it's time for less cynicism and more encouragement for outbursts of spontaneity--think of those that gave birth to futurism, dadaism, and surrealism. Elephantis 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. A magazine on contemporary art and visual culture that features up-to-the-minute visual material, fresh faces, and original voices, uncovering new trends and talent.
