AMANI OLU NAMED MANAGING EDITOR OF WHITEWALL
Longtime Nomadic Curator Finds Home in Publishing
NEW YORK (October 11, 2012) – Whitewall is pleased to announce the appointment of Amani Olu as its new Managing Editor. Olu, who comes with a wealth of experience as an arts executive, independent curator, and writer, joins the team to head the revitalization of the publication’s digital component, Whitewallmag.com. Olu will expand its coverage of contemporary art, lifestyle, fashion, and design.
“I am excited to start a new challenge with Whitewall and look forward to working with the Whitewall team to further develop their website,” said Olu. “I am fortunate to join such a respected publication that prides itself on thoroughly establishing the relationship between contemporary art and luxury lifestyle.”
Whitewallmag.com, which is currently undergoing a redesign, will launch in beta form in mid-November with exclusive, pre coverage of Art Basel Miami Beach 2012. The full website will launch next March during the Armory Show 2013.
“I am thrilled for Amani Olu to join the Whitewall team. Amani has interacted with Whitewall in a variety of capacities over the years – as a writer and as a contributing expert on Whitewallmag.com,” said Editor-in-Chief, Katy Donoghue. “His years of experience and understanding of the contemporary art world and lifestyle industry make him the perfect fit for the role of Managing Editor. I am confident he will be an invaluable addition to Whitewall and will help us to create and realize a new mission and future for Whitewallmag.com.”
“With the success of the print magazine, we decided it was time to prioritize our web presence, and hiring Amani Olu to facilitate this transition was an easy choice,” said Founder, CEO, and Editor-at-Large, Michael Klug. “His entrepreneurial spirit, diverse background and success building projects from the ground up, resonated with us as a formula to help Whitewallmag.com reach its full potential.”
