Upcoming: Ghostly International’s Of Art and Artifice Showcase
The lazy days of summer have flown past us and our calendars have been filling up with upcoming events in both the music and art circles to help keep us the good kind of busy.
An example of this, combining both music and art, is being curated by Ghostly International and the Art Directors Club come mid-September. The two forces teamed up to cohost a 4-day event showcasing the diversity behind their creative rosters.
The Art Directors Club is beginning its CRE8 series of music and art focusing on Ghostly International, a unique culture identity that has helped elevate the careers of visual artists including Michael Cina, Sougwen Chung, Andy Gilmore, Will Calcutt and Matt Shlian, while releasing work from musicians such as Matthew Dear, Com Truise, Gold Panda, Lusine and School of Seven Bells.
The event, titled, Of Art and Artifice, is not a retrospective—it is a comprehensive state of the union, a peek into what’s next after 13 years of creativity from Ghostly International, creating an essential selection of work from the Ghostly family into a never-before-seen collection.
The schedule is as follows:
Thursday September 13th opening gala at 6pm with live performances from Com Truise, Lusine, Michna (DJ) with live projection performance from Sougwen Chung.
Friday September 14th artist talks day 1, hosted by Michael Cina, Andy Gilmore and Will Calcutt.
Saturday September 15th artists talk day 2, hosted by Matthew Shlian, Timothy Saccenti and Sougwen Chung.
Sunday September 16th free and open to the public 12-5pm.
