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