Brooklyn: Elephant Magazine’s 5 Must See Artists at The Other Art Fair Brooklyn
Ahead of the second edition of The Other Art Fair Brooklyn we asked our partners at Elephant magazine which artists they were most looking forward to see at the fair.
Elephant magazine was first published in 2009 and is now into its 32nd issue. Recently relaunched with a new design for both its print and online versions, Elephant has always been the inclusive outcast, looking at life through art without the rhetoric and heaviness of conventional art criticism. Featuring a broad range of voices and contemporary creative minds, from emerging to the canonical, the Elephant ethos is to be open to everything and everyone—and have fun along the way.
