The 6th Annual Supersonic Invitational

The 6th Annual Supersonic Invitational opens tomorrow (January 7th). Curated by Zach Tutor (of Supersonic Art) and held at SPOKE Art’s new NYC gallery, the show features nearly 40 different artists from around the world.

Especially in light of the upheavals of the past year, Tutor’s hope is that this year’s event will provide an important opportunity to reflect:

“I’ve always resolved myself to bring the most visually stunning artwork into view through Supersonic Art and with 2016 behind us I find this task more significant than ever before. In years past, the Supersonic Invitational has been purely just a celebration of creation. But this year, I’ve decided to make that celebration a reflection of us all by inviting leading portrait and figurative artists from the New Contemporary movement to help define the status quo of who we are and where we may stand at this moment in time.”

Check out more images from the show below or on display at SPOKE NYC January 7 – 28!

Giveaway: QWSTION Overnighter Bag

Switzerland-based QWSTION have teamed up with fashion designer Julian Zigerli to produce a special version of their Weekender bag and they sent us one. The iridescent surface displays an array of colours when light shines directly at it. Note: We shot the image above with a flash, and the colours have not been manipulated. Have a look below to see what the bag looks like with the lights on.

There’s also a second set of straps so the bag can be worn over the shoulder or as a backpack. We have one of these special bags to give away to our readers so if you wanna snag it, leave a comment below and tell us the first place you’ll travel with it.
