Nike 1/1 film, by AKQA. Creatives: Davor Krvavac, Greg Mullen, Nick Bailey
Art and football become unlikely bedfellows in a new competition launched by Nike, which offers the chance for artists to exhibit during the Basel Art Fair and design a limited edition series of Nike Dunks.
Devised by AKQA, 1/1 invites artists to submit work to the brief ‘The Art of Football’. Works entered will be displayed in an online gallery where they will be judged by SHOWstudio‘s Nick Knight – winning entrants will then see their work exhibited in a show held in Basel (coinciding with the contemporary art fair held in the city in June), alongside the work of 11 established creative talents.
One overall winner will then be chosen to have their work immortalised on a limited edition series of Nike Dunks, and the best work from the exhibition will also be included in a 1/1 book.
All work can be entered online at nike1-1.com. Submissions close on May 18.
