Stages 2009


Concurrent with the 2009 Tour de France, seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong's LIVESTRONG foundation, Nike and Gallerie Emmanuel Perrotin present Stages, a global art exhibition showcasing work inspired by Armstrong--not only as an incredible athlete but as a survivor of testicular cancer.
The exhibit, which starts 16 July at Gallerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris will feature donated work from more than 20 world-renowned artists, including Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Cai GuoQuiang and Shepard Fairey (creator of Barrack Obama's HOPE posters) to name a few. Traveling to New York in October and Los Angeles in November, the exhibit strives to raise awareness on the issue of cancer as a worldwide malady.
With all profits going to the Lance Armstrong Foundation's efforts to defeat cancer through research, outreach and legislation all while combining art and philanthropy, what a fantastic combination to support!
