The website standardculture.com has spawned a print edition, for the enjoyment of visitors and guests at The Standard hotel’s locations in New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere. From Shivani Vora’s New York Times item:
The publication replicates the online content of the five-year-old site, which has 55,000 unique visitors a month and features interviews with artists, actors and musicians.
The current 16-page issue of Standard Culture has an interview with the American singer Banks, an interview with the actress Susan Sarandon about her role in The Rocky Horror Picture Show as the 40th anniversary of the film approaches, and an interview with the Iranian artist Farhad Moshiri about his show “Float” at the Galerie Perrotin on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
That Rocky Horror tie-in seems especially apt, because as long as The Standard cranks out this quarterly print magazine, also available at select non-hotel locations, readers might as well sing, “Let’s do the time warp… again.”
