The New Issue of Acne Paper by Acne Studios
Acne Paper 17
Acne Studios has unveiled the latest edition, Acne Paper 17. It brings together art, fashion, music, and design in the hybrid between a book and a magazine.
The new format of the Acne paper invites readers to explore an experimental and interdisciplinary issue. From biographies, novels, and culture to art magazines and fashion magazines, its story revolves around Atticus, a fictional character in the art world.
The Title, Atticus
For its story, issue 17 of Acne Paper covers a five-chapter memoir written by the avatar Atticus. The stories invite us to his very extraordinary life – from a dancer to the story of a famous person in the art world. His vivid reflections take the readers on a journey through the deeper levels of art as well as the highlights of his life.
His biography, however, is his relationship with Desmond, the love of his life. Also, his life reminds us of the tragic story of the dramatic AIDS epidemic and the death of many loved and talented people. A special collaboration, in particular, with some artists, will benefit an AIDS charity. These artists include Darrel Ellis, Arch Connelly, Jimmy Wright, and Larry Stanton.
Meanwhile, the new edition is the most significant volume to date. It features the work of more than fifty contemporary artists. Additionally, its fashion editorials feature Luis Alberto Rodriguez and Raphael Hirsch, Cho Gi-Seok and Robbie Spencer, Paul Kooiker and Beat Bolliger, Justin French and Glen Mban, William Waterworth and Pierre-Alexandre Fillaire, as well as a surreal still-life story by Keisuke Otobe and Dimitra Louana Marlanti, and an intimate self-portrait portfolio by Ibrahim Kamara.
Acne Paper Issue 17 is now available in Acne Studios stores worldwide and online at acnestudios.com
It’s a biannual magazine published by Acne Studios with a brief but remarkable life (2005 – 2014). But it returned in 2021, with a new design direction. Its wide ranges of topics includes not only culture in the broadest sense, but also exploring an eclectic variety of subjects. Indeed, the interdisciplinary editorial approach offers extraordinary entertainment through photography, fashion, art, literature, and journalism.
