Today, in conjunction with global release of Madonna's secretprojectrevolution, the 17-minute film she created and co-directed with Steven Klein to launch a global initiative to further freedom of expression, a new Flipboard magazine titled #ArtForFreedom also debuted. The #ArtForFreedom Flipboard magazine created by Madonna, Steven Klein and Giovanni Bianco (of Studio 65) features 85 exclusive animated GIF's that can be easily flipped through on Flipboard and shared across social networks or into other Flipboard magazines. Each GIF is based off of the film.
Bringing the stunning content of secretprojectrevolution and Art For Freedom into one immersive digital collection, Madonna is pioneering the media experience with her magazine on Flipboard. Fans can find Madonna's magazine in the New & Noteworthy and Art categories of the free Flipboard app for any iPhone, iPad or Android device. "Working with Flipboard was an eye opening experience", said Madonna, "They've given me a whole new outlet to show my work. They've been totally supportive and collaborative and I love the way it looks. One more important puzzle piece in the revolution of love."
Fans can participate in the larger conversation that Madonna is sparking with this project around the question "What does freedom mean to you?" by creating their own expression through ArtForFreedom.com or creating their own Flipboard magazine. You can also also search for or tap on the hashtags #secretprojectrevolution, #artforfreedom and #revolution to see how others are expressing their freedom.
A Flipboard magazine is a new way to collect and share content; a single place for gathering stories, photos, and videos around any topic or passion. Three million magazines have been created in the first five months since the launch of Flipboard's magazine curation in March, on topics ranging from fashion to filmmaking and from changing the world to changing people's minds. Magazine curators include political leaders, musicians, publishers and millions of every day people with a passion who want to express themselves. Flipboard recently crossed the 85 million active readers mark.
