Loeries 2012 – Viva Migrate. Viva!

The new Viva! issue of Migrate, the official magazine of The Loerie Awards, is now available at Exclusive Books and CNA stores. Viva – literally ‘long live’ – is synonymous with the global struggle for freedom, and is the theme of this year’s Loeries’ campaign – Viva African Creativity Viva!

What do you believe in? What should live forever?

Roanna Williams, creative director of Migrate says, “Be prepared to be uplifted, to be part of a true spirit of creativity, to be exposed to expression, to be moved by real passion and to be inspired to start your own creative revolution. Long Live Creativity!”

In Viva! we find out how Portugal's Alexandre Farto's revolutionary graffiti carvings, scratched from old painted walls, reveal mortal street art. You will also get to appreciate USA's Kate Macdowell’s artistry as a porcelain sculptor, whose handmade pieces not only challenge traditional sculpturing but are also responses to environmental stressors. Her pieces borrow from myth, art history, figures of speech and other cultural reference points.

See how German studio Zeitguised pushes the envelope on mainstream design, and appreciate a decade of the Loeries through the hands and eyes of Celina Guimaraes, creative director at The Jupiter Drawing Room South Africa – also the agency behind the 2012 Loeries Viva! campaign.

If you are militant about your right to creative expression, then be sure to get your hands on a copy of Migrate, just R35 at Exclusive Books and CNA stores nationwide.

The Loerie Awards entry deadline has been extended to 15 June. Check www.theloerieawards.co.za for details.
