'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. With issue seven however, the muse is in fact the allure of night-time activity—kebabs, keyboards, karaoke and all—gathering a number of artists whose work is 'a celebration of nightlife, of joyful crowds and city streets, and of much-needed fun.'
Featuring the likes of Mark Leckey, Bruce Gilden, Hedi Slimane, Rosie Marls, Vanessa Beecroft and more, with four covers to choose from.
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?’
