Magazine, group show, web. Launch
March 2012 will see the launch of UPON PAPER in Berlin, a new, innovative platform creating a dialogue with artists of all kinds, as well as photographers, designers, architects, and anyone interested in art. The unifying theme is a passion for paper as a timeless medium for capturing ideas, dreams and visions and instigating debate. UPON PAPER consists of three complementary strands: UPON PAPER magazine is the place where paper becomes the stage for art. The exceptional quality of the magazine's design and production make it a sensual objet de desir. It will be published twice a year in a bilingual German and English edition with a print run of 5,000. The theme of the first issue is Los Angeles, with the theme of UPON PAPER 2 in Autumn 2012 being color. UPON PAPER space: The exhibition, Planet L.A., takes the theme of the publication and restages it spatially. The exhibiting artists are: Bob Mizer, Jack Pierson, James Reeve, John Severson, Mirko Martin, Peter Emch, Ralf Ziervogel, Rinus Van de Velde, Robert McNally, Dries Van Noten and Veronika Kellndorfer. UPON PAPER web: The continuously updated website, www.uponpaper.com, will create a forum for the global creative community through its exclusive editorial content and social networking elements. The creative deployment of its technical possibilities opens the way for genuine dialogue.
