The Lance Armstrong Foundation and Nike’s STAGES opened yesterday at Deitch Projects temporary gallery space in New York. The traveling exhibition (which premiered in Paris in July) brings together a heavy hitting list of contemporary art’s biggest names including Richard Prince, Cai Guo- Qiang, Ed Ruscha, Kenny Scharf and Andreas Gursky, with the most respected artists who have crossed over from street and graffiti cultures. Ranging from painting and sculpture, to modified bikes, the works on display have been influenced by (some more literally than others), and will raise proceeds for the LIVESTRONG mission of raising awareness and fighting cancer.
