About the magazine:

Adhesivo magazine is a quarterly publication, born as a new concept for sharing and discovering Hispano-American Art and Design. It is a print magazine that centers it’s content on emerging artistic talents, representing a perspective not seen in traditional magazines or academical texts.

We are Edith, Gonzalo, Miguel and Raquel; a group of friends from Spain, Peru and Venezuela who graduated from Pratt Institute and have been actively involved in the Art and Design world. We believe that creative expression acts as a form of identity, and we want to share an honest perspective on what hispanic expression is all about. Our team is also comprised of talented artists, designers and writers whom we are proud to call collaborators.

 

The idea: 

Adhesivo was born when we found that there was a need for a space where one could have access to what talented creatives from our generation were doing. We wanted to innovate and challenge the traditional channels of public exposure. 

 As soon as we started to appreciate how many talented people we were surrounded by, we realized they needed a space and place in history. We found how little exposure and attention was given to emerging Hispanic artists and designers and this frustrated us, since we were aware of their over-exceeding talent. 

 A database of friends and people we knew quickly turned into a growing platform of +300 young talents that want to share their work with the world. It's now time to let the world know about them and we need your help! 

We want to produce a content-rich, thick and high quality magazine that not only looks great, but also can live in your library forever, narrating today’s history through a honest lens on emerging Hispanic expression. As a reward for your pledge, we want to thank you by offering you: unique postcards, t-shirts, a Launch Party in New York City (with many of the artists and designers of this creative community+our backers) and of course, the First issue of adhesivo Magazine.

 

The first issue:

Some of the topics that we will discuss in the first issue include:

- The role of Female Hispanics in Architecture and Industrial Design
- Insights of Young Colombian artists who have alleviated the suffering and dark history of drug cartels through Vibrant Street Art
- A list of worldwide fairs, galleries and pop-up shows were emerging Hispanics are being showcased- The 21st century approach to Art and Design with minimal resources in Cuba - The Festival of Monumental Callao, for Urban Art in Peru and San Turce es Ley in Puerto Rico, showing how the development of an art culture can strengthen a society's culture while helping to reduce crime rates and increase foreign tourism. 

And many other exclusive quality articles, which you would not be able to read anywhere else. 

 

 

Why does adhesivo Magazine matter? 

Creating a print publication on the present's happenings will allow us to ensure the proper documentation and transcendence of today's history through cultural expression. We will feature emerging talents who don’t just tell us their stories, they show us through their work. 

For young Hispanic Artists and Designers, cultural expression is an invaluable tool to archive the past, understand the present and activate change in the future. Yet, as with many underrepresented populations, emerging Hispanic Artists and Designers and the work they produce are often silenced and overlooked.

How to describe the effects of Political Events, years of pain and struggle, personal identity that is too complex, and memory and imagination mingling while overcoming Social Issues? This is where art, design and cultural expression come in very handy for documenting the history. The Hispanic culture, known for being shaped through family tales passed from generation to generation; has failed to document the last decades of expression. The digital era has affected the documentation of the present, often replacing books and magazines with bookmarked tabs and shared links. But don't panic: we got you covered. adhesivo Magazine will ensure the proper documentation and transcendence of the Hispanic Cultural presence in the present.

How will the money be used?

All the funds will be used towards the printing and distribution of the First Issue. We aim to print 400 copies of adhesivo and distribute them to our Backers, Galleries and Museums across the United States and around the world. We will also be hosting a Launch Party at a local venue in New York City this summer, for which we will gather some of the artists and designers featured in the magazine as well as our backers, who we want to personally meet and thank for making this idea become a reality.

We have already started on the design and layout of the first issue, and we plan to have it ready to print by the the time we finish the campaign. Shipping of the first issue will be around August and September worldwide. 

By pledging and sharing our campaign, you would be helping us fund the printing costs of a High Quality magazine. All the funds will go towards the printing and distribution of adhesivo, keeping it ad-free so every page is rich in content.

Any kind of support - whether a pledge or a share on Twitter and other social media platforms will be hugely appreciated!

Thanks!

Risks and challenges

If we do not meet our goal, we will not be able to print and distribute the magazine. The risk of not getting this magazine printed is of missing the opportunity to write an important chapter in history and running the risk that the work of this creative community will be forgotten.

For printing the first issue we have outsourced a local company which has great reputation for printing highly known and quality magazines. However, if the project is successfully funded and we move on to printing the magazine, there is a risk of having color or printing errors, since we are human. Delivering qualitative and timeless content is part of our vision, so if this were to happen we would re-print the magazine and assume the shipping delays. In order to prevent this to happen, we are planning to print the first run at the end of July so that we have enough time to re-print and ship on time in case we find any mistake or error.
