Kith Homage Exhibit curated by the Joshua Liner Gallery
For Art Basel Miami 2015, sneaker designer Ronnie Fieg collaborated with Joshua Liner to create the pop-up exhibition Homage, which offered a look at artwork inspired by Ronnie's work with the sneaker brand ASICS. Thirteen artists were provided with the details and inspiration behind each of the designs which led to the creation of exhibited works, in addition to a final piece showcasing an upcoming 25th Anniversary Homage-inspired ASICS GEL-Lyte III. The artists that contributed work to the show include Wayne White, Josh Sperling, Alfred Steiner, Greg Lamarche, Michael Kagan, Erin M. Riley, Evan Hecox, Riusuke Fukahori, Paul Wackers, Jim Houser, Gregory Johnston, Sam Friedman, David Ellis, and Andrew Schoultz.
To go along with the exhibition, Fieg also held a book signing where he presented visitors of the gallery with an opportunity to get a tour of Kith Homage Exhibit curated by the Joshua Liner Gallery and a further glimpse into what inspired each sneaker.
