KULT ISSUE #20: TOYS - Available Now!
WHAT-IS: "45 artists have pushed the world of toys into overdrive – individually interpreting and recreating playthings. This issue exposes the history of toys, what they are now, and how they might define the future.""Kult Magazine" is a quarterly publication, with each issue’s contents focuses on a specific “theme”, and for the latest ISSUE #20, the theme is something dear to this blog: “TOYS”!
Featured here are some snaps of the inner pages, and as well a quick page-flip video (seen up top), for kind considerations :)
"Kult inspires play by celebrating the world of toys and addressing the various controversies they present. From rocking horses made with real horse hair to 3D printed toys, these toys have continuously made their mark in pop culture.
For anything significant that’s happened, someone’s built a toy based on it. The history of toys is almost a history of us.
With this in mind, artists were given facts about playthings which they interpreted and then recreated into artwork. The result is a visually provoking art book that exposes the history of toys, what they are now, and how they might define the future.
Over 80 percent of the 50 contributing artists have never been featured in Kult before and were scouted through social media, local art markets and word-of-mouth. With this issue, we invite you to partake in making the journey of toys."
This issue was released in tandem with the launch of the “Choking Hazard” exhibition at Kult Gallery. Currently available to purchase here for SG$8.00 (price excluding shipping / For international and/or express shipping, kindly e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org)
