A Year In Review

Robin Wright, Oscar Isaac,
Patti Smith, Meryl Streep, & More...

This year marked the launch of NeueJournal – NeueHouse’s Global Media platform. In May, we celebrated the release of our first print edition of NeueJournal at Frieze NY (a hardcover 300-page book with eight covers), followed shortly after by the re-launch of our digital editorial platform NeueJournal.com.

 

From words of wisdom with Robin Wright, an impromptu poem contributed by the one and only Patti Smith, to a visual tour shot by Brigitte Lacombe of Frank Stella‘s studio we’ve had the honor of gaining newfound inspiration from some of the industries most creative visionaries out there today. So, as we reflect and set our New Year’s resolutions in motion, we take a look back at Lacombe’s portrait sittings in video format and rounded up a list of thoughtful quotes to help us reset and rein in 2016. Happy New Year!
