After 3 years and some 60 artists later, the traveling exhibition known as A Nice Set finally came home to roost last evening. A joint curation project between Staple Design and Jeremy Hollister of We Are Plus, with help from Hong Kong's IdN publication, A Nice Set give prominence to the inter-connectivity between the creative types around the world and the shared interests among them. The journey first started in Hong Kong in 2007, and subsequently stopped off in Tokyo, Paris, Madrid, Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore, followed by Los Angeles and now New York. Along each transit points, new artists were invited to contribute, all on an unlikely medium turntable slip mats for vinyl records. The result, a rich tapestry of imagination and conception.
