For an artist, space can take different shapes : the white cube of a gallery, a landscape or the pages of a journall. Some artists invested those 300 printed pages, conceived like a journey through an unkown land : collages, snapshots, interviews…
You have to look at it twice before you can find your marks and they are closer from art than press. Marfa is a good title that could sum up the project : a place with 2000 inhabitants, that everybody knows in the art world as so many proposals were taken there ponctually. A lot of 1st person, sincerity and travels in this first issue. Some names : Jeffrey Deitch, Tim Barber, Lindsay Lohan and maybe some references to Toilet Paper magazine by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari of which Marfa seems to be a distant cousin.
