Incontinued anticipation of the launch of the new Sole Fury silhouette, Reebok announced the new#SplitFromcampaign.
Sole Fury andthe#SplitFrom campaign is inspired by the creation of “Split Cushioning,” an innovation developed in the 90’s that radically split from conventional design by removing a piece of a shoe’s midsole. It was a calculated innovation with a bold look, and 25 years later, its influence is seen on feet across culture from the gym to the street.
The new campaign features six visionary young creatives who embody the same forward-thinking spirit as the sneaker: to #SplitFrom the pack and redefine culture. Collectively, the result is an exclusive Zine—a physical book that embodies the campaign that was both shot by and features all six subjects.
Releasing in a men’s and women’s colorway, Sole Furywill retailfor $90 andwill beavailable exclusively on Reebok.com, ChampsSports,ChampsSports.comand Reebok locations startingNovember 8th.For more information leading up to the drop, consumers can sign up atwww.reebok.com/us/sole_fury_signup.

The Untitled Space is pleased to present multimedia series “ONLY YOU” by Indira Cesarine at SCOPE Art Show in Basel, Switzerland in partnership with ArtHelix Gallery and SHIM. Cesarine’s medium format photography, welded steel sculpture and video art will be on view in Booth A43 from June 12th to 17th for the duration of the fair.
“ONLY YOU” is a conceptual narrative portrait series chronicling a woman’s emotions as she traverses a metaphorical landscape of love, loss, abuse and betrayal. Each artwork is part of the greater narrative of her story. The series is based on autobiographical experiences of the artist. It was photographed on a medium format RZ camera as well as on HD video. The limited edition photographs and welded steel sculptures were completed in 2017 and unveiled last November at The Untitled Space gallery along with a dance performance by Bryn Cohn + Artists inspired by the series. Photography from the series was additionally featured at CICA Museum, South Korea as part of their January exhibition “Portrait 2018”.
The video art edition of “ONLY YOU” premiered at Art Basel Miami for an exhibition in collaboration with American Friends of The Louvre and Miami Art Museum. The video has additionally been screened internationally at exhibitions including “Factory Project” at London’s Red Bull Studios in collaboration with Graffik Gallery, at an event for Cannes Film Festival in France, and at the Big Screen Plaza in Chelsea, New York.
Indira Cesarine is a multimedia artist who works with photography, video, painting, printmaking and sculpture. A graduate of Columbia University with a triple major in Art History, French and Women’s Studies, she additionally studied art and photography at Parsons School of Design, International Center of Photography, School of Visual Arts, The Art Students League and New York Academy of Art. Cesarine had her first solo show at the age of sixteen at Paul Mellon Arts Center.
Empowering feminist themes are often the point of departure for Cesarine’s multi-sensory series. Her artwork questions the place of humanity in context with contemporary civilization and is often influenced by autobiographical content and women’s history at large. As a multi-disciplinarian artist she works across several mediums and techniques to convey a rich and diverse narrative, with an emphasis on thematic subject matter that engages a narrative of social discourse and art activism.
Her artwork has been featured internationally at many art galleries, museums and festivals, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Mattatuck Museum, CICA Museum, Getty Images Gallery, French Embassy Cultural Center, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Art Basel Miami, Cannes Film Festival and the International Festival Photo Mode to name a few. In 2014, her public art sculpture, “The Egg of Light” was exhibited at Rockefeller Center as part of the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt. Her work was recently auctioned at Sotheby’s New York for the annual “Take Home A Nude” art benefit.
“ONLY YOU, No 10″
“’ONLY YOU’ is an autobiographic series that I photographed and directed, working with a model to reenact sentiments I was feeling. This series tells the story not just of my emotional trauma, but that of many women who have been abused and betrayed by people they trusted, and how difficult it can be to process those emotions. In light of the #MeToo movement, many women are finding the strength to tell their stories. I have had many experiences that have crossed the line, in my personal life as well as throughout my career, and this series resonates with me as particularly relevant, a metaphorical mirror of how many women are feeling right now. You can feel the emotions in this series—they range from anger to sadness to disbelief to shame…frustration, fear— It’s an emotive series that focuses on the eyes as a portal.” – Indira Cesarine

Being able to capture it photographically gives us a window into our past and it how it has helped form our future.” – Markus Klinko
Klinko and his subjects
Throughout the years, Markus Klinko has become one of the most recognizable celebrity photographers across the globe. For his upcoming exhibition, “2000s”, Mouche Gallery has assembled a collection of famous images from his archives. The collection depicts a variety of pop culture milestones that have truly defined the decade of the early 2000’s. Highlighted works include: Beyonce’sDangerously in Love album cover; a series of Mary J. Blige album covers documenting her meteoric rise to superstardom; and images from Klinko’s wildly successful David Bowie Unseen international exhibition. With these works and more to see, Klinko can be credited for capturing some of the most legendary moments in each of his subject’s careers.
David Bowie “Heathen” Album Cover (2002) by Markus Klinko Ó All Rights Reserved 2018
Klinko’s works were recently displayed in a New York Subway station with a large-scale photographic installation and interactive displays celebrating the late, great David Bowie. The installation was unveiled earlier this month and runs until May 13. It coincides with the opening of Bowie Is – an exhibition celebrating the musician’s contribution to popular culture – at the Brooklyn Museum.
The centerpiece of the takeover was an installation that stretched across 30 metal ‘L beams’ and was seen at either end of the station from steps leading down to the platform. It features black-and-white photographs of Bowie as the Thin White Duke – a persona he adopted in the mid- 1970s and taken by Masayoshi Sukita and Markus Klinko.

Made possible by FUJIFILM North America Corporation, “2000s” will feature a rare retrospective collection of select cameras and lenses used by Klinko to photograph these images and will be installed at Mouche Gallery. As one of the earliest adopters of digital post-production, Klinko pioneered a style that widely influenced trends in current fashion and celebrity photography. Klinko credits his usage of the FUJIFILM GX680III, a 6x8cm medium format system, in conjunction with FUJICHROME PROVIA 100F for the vibrant palette and exceptionally high resolution of his work. In 2001, Klinko also started shooting with the FUJIFILM FinePix S1 Pro, the early predecessor of the current line of the FUJIFILM X Series and GFX system. A previously unseen series of new images, taken in 2018 with the FUJIFILM GFX medium format mirrorless system, will be unveiled on June 14th, featuring re-emerging signature ’00s staples, connecting his works from past and present. All of Klinko’s works to be featured in “2000’s” were created with FUJIFILM cameras and/or film products.
Given the exhibition’s fashion and celebrity culture focus, thirteen of Klinko’s most celebrated images will be sold via Paddle8 (http://www.paddle8.com/auction/cfda) to benefit the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Foundation to help support its programs dedicated to fashion education and professional development.
