Marfa #14

Marfamily is a printed publication inspired by Marfa, Texas and created by artists for artists. A capital of cultural disorder, Marfa, Texas is a small town of just over 2,000 people located in the middle of a desert not far from the Mexican border, and a place that has attracted the attention of the art world since the ‘60s. Marfamily is a platform that connects contemporary high end fashion and art.

Slightly later than usual? Oh well, we’re not the only ones. We’re MARFA now. Just MARFA. We get called that all the time so we made life easier for everyone.

That spice of life you’ve so missed will soon be back…

In a pleasantly surprising turn of events, this issue’s art department is quite the overachiever. One’s appetite will be whet reading how Tracey Emin nibbles on an amaretti biscuit and Matthew Barney is artistically interrogated by friend and collaborator Pierre Huyghe.

Trust us on this, you will find wise words from Chris Kraus, Laila Gohar, Thaddeus Mosley, Florian Krewer and Rebecca Ackroyd, who will delight and inform with their skilled manipulation of words, food, wood and resin.

All this and plenty of swish fashion piccies too: Vivienne Rohner makes a nice face, Hannelore Knuts wears Lutz Huelle and Grace Hartzel sweats her ass off in the Marseille heat.

Open wide for a serving of MARFA #14, which looks at advice, age and acting the part.

Covers by MARFRIENDS, old and new, include Theo Wenner, Esther Theaker, Rachel Chandler, Alexandra Gordienko, Pascal Gambarte and Angela Hill.' - Marfa Journal.
