As summer approaches, events and activities pop out to draw people out of their houses and into the sun. One of the most highly anticipated events, ALIFE Presents, will be kicking our summer into high gear with the Arkitip X Shephard Fairey Issue Edition Release and Installation in ALIFE LA from June 19th – July 12th, right after Kai Regan’s Reckless Endangerment event in ALIFE NYC.
Shephard Fairey is probably one of the most renowned Arkitip alumni, especially because of his recent work and support for the Obama Presidential Campaign. His iconic portrait of President Obama had come to symbolize the campaign and also the historic moment of electing the first ever African American as President. Now, Fairey’s famous portrait has earned a spot in the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian, elevating Fairey’s contribution to a whole new level.
This issue of Arkitip not only marks the 20th anniversary of Fairey’s “Obey” campaign, but also a long awaited reunion between the magazine and the artist. For the Issue Edition Release event, Fairey has created an installation and a billboard at the on-site gallery location. The special Issue Edition will not only include a copy of the magazine, but also a signed silk screen print by Fairey that is created specially for this edition. The print and issue will be packaged in a custom designed box produced exclusively for this issue by Incase. Aside from the magazine, ALIFE also designed a commemorative OBEY+ARKITIP+ALIFE tee that is available specifically with the issue release.
