ART PAPERS announced today that it has begun an international search for a successor to its current Executive Director, Jamie Badoud. ART PAPERS President Peter Bahouth announced the transition, which will be marked by the planned departure of Badoud on March 15th, 2007. Serving ART PAPERS since January of 2000, he led the organization to a new level of accomplishment and recognition. During his tenure, Badoud stabilized then grew the organization into one of the most respected contemporary art magazines in the world. The organization's budget increased by more than 125% through a dramatic rise in earned revenues, foundation support, and successful fundraisers. Circulation grew 80% to include subscribers in 36 countries and newsstand sales throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
Bahouth stated, "Jamie Badoud is leaving a very different ART PAPERS than the one he joined almost seven years ago. Due to his charismatic leadership and tireless work with a committed board and staff, ART PAPERS has grown significantly in size and influence. Not only have the organization's fundraisers grown from grassroots garage sales to some of the biggest and most successful art events of the year, the magazine has undergone a dramatic redesign and public programming has grown to include some of the most important figures in contemporary art. He leaves a remarkable record of accomplishment and leadership. We greatly appreciate his significant contributions."
Badoud stated, "My tenure with ART PAPERS has been one of tremendous growth for myself and the organization. I am proud to leave on the heels of a large capacity-building grant of up to $100,000 from the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts. These funds will firmly position the organization for sustained growth and maximize impact of our expanding programs. Knowing the best is yet to come, I look forward to witnessing the organization‚s continued success."
Bahouth added, "ART PAPERS has progressed significantly in recent years as an organization dedicated to the examination, development and definition of art and culture in the world today. The strong foundation left by Badoud will help us in our mission to provide an independent and accessible forum for the exchange of perspectives on contemporary art."
