The Kick Off!

In celebration of the beautiful game, Nike and SHOWstudio launch 1-1: Art of Football, inviting you to celebrate your art through football, and your football through art. From today, the field is open for SHOWstudio viewers and the public at large to submit their own work in response to the statement 'Art of Football' and Nick Knight's video brief. The work will be shown on the Nike 1-1 website, a shortlist showcased on SHOWstudio during the course of the project and the best 11 exhibited in Basel during the city's prestigious art fair, along with work from a squad of 11 established creatives selected from around the world. Finally, one piece of art submitted will be immortalised on a limited edition set of Nike Dunks. The competition kicks off today, so for more information go to our project page.

    MATTHEW BARNEY....RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FOOTBALL AND ART. HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PICKED TO BE ONE OF THE COLLABORATORS. WHAT NICK KNIGHT HAS SPOKE ABOUT IN THE PROJECT BRIEF WAS EXACTLY WHAT BARNEYS WORK IS ABOUT.
