More about this issue

As binaries are broken and gender roles are blurred, the once very fixed position of masculinity has been dislodged. In issue 38, Elephant speaks with five artists who are shaking off the restraints of this way of being and suggesting new possibilities. For issue 38 research essay, Arwa Haider plunders her years of experience as a music journalist to question the role of masculinity in the music industry, and speaks with the new generation who are redefining the landscape.

Issue 38 also feature Encounters with Ai Weiwei, Tracey Emin, Eva Vermandel, Yinka Shonibare and William Monk, and meet the New Establishment, speaking with two young painters, Oli Epp and Ben Sledsens.

In the Paper Galleries the editors see the lone man—slick, serene and occasionally engaged in risky business—through the eyes of Anthony Iacono, and feature the dreamy photographs of Mayumi Hosokura. In Journal Elephant explores the sense of community forged by gay magazines, and hears from art critic Anna McNay about the experience of “sitting” for both a photographer and a painter.

Since its inception in 2009, the magazine has been dedicated to capturing the sensual pleasure of art and offers readers an ideal platform to experience it in print, pairing arresting images with original and independent research in award-winning design.

The writing is eloquent and opinionated rather than rhetorical and theoretical, favouring in-depth analysis over extensive referencing.
