Yes, but is it art? Last week's FRIEZE frenzy on Randall's Island featured contemporary works in every genre. However, it was Saturday's Q&A with New York Magazine art critic Jerry Saltz that really got our attention when somebody asked what he thought of PAPER's Kim Kardashian cover. His reply:

"Few people have ever existed on earth, pace Andy Warhol, who have manipulated the ephemeral essence known as image better than Kim Kardashian and Kanye. I don't care if you like their work, I would say that Kanye is an artist and Kim is this completely self-invented person who might have invented the selfie."
