Acne Paper Issue 17
Atticus – NEW YORK
When Acne Paper was relaunched last year, it arrived as a hybrid between a book and a magazine, reimagined in a new format and bold design direction: expanding to 500 pages. The new issue of Acne Paper has taken the idea of a hybrid one step further.
Part biography, part novel, part cultural art journal, part fashion magazine, this experimental and interdisciplinary issue is imagined around the story of Atticus: a fictional personality in the art world who will celebrate his one hundred year birthday during the Acne Paper launch in Milan this November.
Acne Paper 17 is the most important art issue to date for Acne Studio, featuring the work of more than fifty contemporary artists, including (in alphabetic order) : Kai Althoff, Felipe Baeza, Maria Bartuszová, Louise Bonnett, Victor Brauner, Enrico Castellani, Julie Curtiss, Chioma Ebinama, Inka Essenhigh, Lucio Fontana, Marguerite Humeau, Marina Karella, Sarah Lucas, René Magritte, Piero Manzoni, Fabio Mauri, Minoru Nomata, Ariana Papademetropoulos, Christina Quarles, Eileen Quinlan, Nathaniel Mary Quinn, Ed Ruscha, Anj Smith, John Stezaker, Salman Toor, Cy Twombly, Paloma Varga Weisz, Andy Warhol and Lian Zhang, to name but a few.
