Spoke Art has brought their annual Moleskine Project group exhibition to New York City for its 7th iteration. Curated by Ken Harman Hashimoto and Rodrigo Luff, the show features over 60 artists from around the world, and spans various artistic styles and mediums, delving into artists'' sketchbooks. Both emerging and established artists are provided with a Moleskine book in order to create an original piece within the pages of the book.
Co-curator Rodrigo Luff explains that “the show is a tribute to how artists have developed and grown by using sketchbooks to dive deeper into the personal realms that fuel their artwork, exploring new ideas, concepts and even experimenting with different media and styles. An energetic visual dialogue of imagery flows from frame to frame, forming a collective sketchbook that allows us to appreciate the radically individual approach taken by each artist.”
In conjunction with the show, a Moleskine sized leather bound art book titled The Moleskine Project: Volume 2, will be released, featuring international artists from previous editions of The Moleskine Project.
