'Exploring the relationship between art and fashion'

Each issue of Middle Plane typically uses fashion as an entry point in examining a single artist’s work and legacy. This ninth issue is themed ‘Gatecrash Your Own Fantasy’ and much like the previous issue, features multiple artists rather than a single person. 

On the covers of this issue, you'll find Paul McCarthy, Judy Chicago, Lotta Volkova and—as the Middle Plane team are particularly pleased about—Peter Saville, smoking a cigarette while answering questions from close friends and collaborators across a 40-page feature inside. What does Peter's perfect Saturday in London look like, Jony Ive asks? Chantilly cream, fresh strawberries and pink almond paste.’ 

On the Journal:
About an earlier issue, ‘We’re interested to see whether this unusual and experimental pilot issue is purely concerned with launching the title, and if this compellingly irreverent approach will form a template for issue one and beyond. What will happen when the object actually is the magazine and those quotes for printing turn into ink on paper? Will those blank advert spaces turn into elaborate spreads featuring luxury goods? Will we continue to be surprised by what this process-based approach generates?’ 

Sorry, not enough stock!
