The inaugural issue's focus consists of a reflection on family. From the byline: "Despite one's efforts to be at the epicenter of art and culture, to be an individual, to learn a craft, or to succeed, part of who we are comes from somewhere more humble. For many, family and relatives contradict our individual identities. S T U P E N D O U S #1 is dedicated to the people who we are forced to interact with, for the people we have to see, despite our feelings towards them: to our disliked and eccentric relatives". The nineteen young artists involved enthusiastically chronicle their thieving grandfathers, gold-medalist uncles, stage-magician fathers, and the anxieties and experiences that surround such things, through a variety of media.
