For the Love of Art

PAPER has a habit of preferring artists to the usual roster of Pop culture celebrities, for the most part, and regularly turns to them in times of doubt. While the dust was still settling in the wake of 9/11, on the first day we were able to get back into our downtown offices, the publishers decided to scrap an entire issue to ask the many artists who lived in close proximity to the World Trade Center to visually respond to a world suddenly turned upside down — because we have always trusted artists to be the last sacred alchemists in our culture, able to make meaning through the most elemental act of questioning. For all our love of art, though, PAPER has never in its 25-year history done an “art issue.” We do it now because on some intuitive level we knew that at this pivotal time for the nation and the planet, on the eve of an election with such crucial consequences, we need art more than ever. As we live in a time of pluralism, when diversity reigns over the authority of any single orthodoxy, we didn’t want to presume to be definitive.

Here our favorite artists and players in the art world tell us who and what they care about now and why, and by doing so, give us much to think about in the wider community of ideas and sensibilities that ultimately bind us together. Terence Koh and Cecily Brown talk about sex and sexuality in art; the inimitable Tauba Auerbach writes a passage of scientific genius; Shepard Fairey visits the increasingly provocative and populated terrain of political art; and more — RoseLee Goldberg on Performance Art, Anne Pasternak on public art, Mark Tribe considers the world of digital art and representation, James Fuentes interviews Rob Pruitt on humor, Michael Nevin explores his love of drawing, Shirin Neshat addresses feelings of exile, and Marc Schiller talks art and commerce by revisiting his earlier thoughts on “The Banksy Effect.”

VIFF Turns Camera Eye to Film Festival Audience

viff-film-festival.jpg

“I was immediately attracted to the idea of turning the movie screen into a kind of mirror to the audience,” says Chris Hutsul of Soft Citizen, referring to the spots he directed for the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF).

They’re smart, funny and unexpectedly existential — but also familiar, because you see yourself in each of these snapshots: your rage at late-coming friends, your perplexity toward abstract cinema, or the way some foreign films turn you into an overthinking, turtleneck-sporting douchebag. With a ponytail.

o The Overanalyzer
o The Foreign Film
o The Seat-Saver
o The Front Row
o The First Question
o The Die Hard

They end neatly — gratefully, even — with the words “We’re glad you’re here.” (So glad, in fact, that they — meaning VIFF — have also given you a game to play. It’s an amusing one-time distraction, enough of an experience to leave you feeling good, post-chortle.)

Agency: TBWA/Vancouver. Soft Citizen produced, Secret Location assisted with interactive production.

 

Is time running out for tween magazines?

Cosmo_girl_copy CosmoGirl is spitting out its last issue this December. With magazine sales falling off a cliff and more young girls choosing Cosmo itself over its sexless tween counterpart, CosmoGirl‘s ad pages dropped 14.5 percent in the first half of 2008. So, Hearst is cutting its losses and focusing on Seventeen. But don’t worry, there won’t be a sudden dearth of Jonas Brothers coverage. The CosmoGirl Web site is still raking in the ad bucks and will remain online. In fact, tween content has been steadily growing online through cheaper-than-print virtual worlds like Neopets and Club Penguin. Disney’s Club Penguin Times, a fake online weekly, is more widely read than a lot of U.S. newspapers. And of course, we can’t forget the crazy-popular Stardoll site. Last week, Elle U.K. announced that it’ll be launching Stardoll magazine. Elle Girl‘s own print edition crashed and burned in 2006, but they’ve also thrived online, so Cosmo Girl might learn a thing or two from them about how to survive in the new tween landscape. Clearly, it takes more than a three-page spread of your most mortifying moments.

England’s Cactus Kid campaign gets spiked

Cactuskid

Does this U.K. campaign for Oasis fruit drinks, starring a rebellious girl and her cactus boyfriend, strike you as offensive or irresponsible or a tacit endorsement of teenage pregnancy and underage sex? Or is it just corny and vague? You be the judge, but some easily offended British consumers have already decided on the former. In fact, 32 of them complained to the Advertising Standards Authority, which concluded that the work was indeed “irresponsible and could discourage good dietary practice.” It’s been ordered off the air. We don’t agree with the dietary ruling. We agree, however, that it encourages questionable sexual practices. I mean, the guy’s a cactus.
