Lance Armstrong and Nike Sportswear’s “Stages” exhibition (previewed here and here) opened up with an amazing roster of artists. As Geoff McFetridge put it, “It’s a veritable ‘A-Team’ of top artists from all walks of the art world.” With names such as Ed Ruscha, Tom Sachs, Eric White, Christopher Wool, Shepard Fairey, Kaws, Cai Guo-Qiang, Yoshitomo Nara, Jose Parla, Richard Prince and Raymond Pettibon to name a few, it was quite a feat to put together this team of prominent artists who banded together for a great cause.
The fresh artwork for this powerhouse exhibition was all produced just for the yellow centric Livestrong anti-cancer theme. Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin played hometown host to the Paris exhibition and the opening night brought out the who’s who of the art and design world. After Paris, the “Stages” exhibtion will be traveling to NYC on October 2nd. Look to AM to bring you more coverage of this immense show.
