We are delighted to announce the release of KALEIDOSCOPE‘s new
issue #36 (spring/summer 2020), coinciding with the redesign of the magazine’s print and digital presence by Swiss art direction and graphic design studio Kasper Florio. Driven by a minimalistic approach which foregrounds the work ofartists and photographers, the new graphic identity is “hacked” by a set of illustrations by Berlin based studio PWR
This issue comes with a set of three covers : London based Nigerian fashion designer Mowalola Ogunlesi (photographed by Jordan Hemingway ) talks to Reba Maybury about her fluid representation of the Black body, championing the individual.
A profile by Jeppe Ugelvig introduces Venice Beach native Eli Russell Linnetz , creative director for the Kardashian West clan and Lady Gaga, and his powerful meditation on fame, glamour, and mythology. Featuring an artwork by design studio Sucuk und Bratwurst, the third cover is dedicated to Cannabiz: The Gentrification of Weed , a trend report on the legalization and corporatization of the marijuana industry comprising an essay by Whitney Mallett , case studies by Lucas Mascatello and Michelle Lhooq , and a focus on Richard Prince by Alexandre Stipanovich. Inaugurating a new text only editorial segment dedicated to urgent research questions of our time, “ What is Influence? Influence?” presents four newly commissioned longform essays (by Caroline Busta Geoffrey Mak Pierce Meyers and Taylore Scarabelli ) discussing influence as legacy, currency and agency all the while examining art’s own influence on society, and viceversa.
MYRISTICA, a special supplement to KALEIDOSCOPE’s new issue #36 created in partnership with Gucci , portrays experimental cellist and songwriter Kelsey Lu as the protagonist of a comic book (illustrated by Terrell Villiers and written by Akia Dorsainvil) illuminating her personal journey with references drawn from fable, cosmology and afro futurism.
From the publisher
Released twice a year, KALEIDOSCOPE is a meeting place for a global community of creative minds, drawn by an audacious art direction and ever-surprising contributions from visionary artists, writers and image-makers. The magazine’s experimental approach also expands to our creative projects in print, online and live—as is best exemplified by the programming of Spazio Maiocchi, our home and exhibition space in Milan, and our annual festival Manifesto, inaugurated in 2019 at Lafayette Anticipations in Paris. Believing that artists are the real truth-tellers and agents of change, our work puts their vision and creativity front and center—a constant reminder about the importance of pushing boundaries and breaking new ground.
