With the soccer championships just around the corner, Nike launched a very interesting new project – Nike 1/1.
Nick Knight was chosen as the curator of the project. He chose 11 established talents in 11 countries in Europe to work with him. These associates invite artists in their countries to submit works on the topic “Art Of Football”. Then Nick Knight and the 1/1 associates select a short list of artists to present works on the topic. The 11 best pieces out of this section are chosen to exhibit in Basel during Art Basel this summer. One final winner will also see his artwork appear on a limited edition series of Nike Dunks and furthermore the best works overall will be published in the 1/1 Art Book.
A great project. We are already curious what the results will be. We will be reporting more in the near future on the project.
Anybody can participate and send in work. All you have to do is go to the dedicated website of the project.
