I have professed my love for the Ghostly International brand here many times. The indie label founded by Sam Valenti thirteen years ago has turned into a complete aesthetic experience. Ghostly’s identity has helped elevate the careers of visual artists including Michael Cina, Sougwen Chung, Andy Gilmore, Will Calcutt and Matt Shlian, while releasing work from musicians such as Matthew Dear, Com Truise, Gold Panda, and Tycho.
Founded in 1920, the Art Directors Club is an not-for-profit membership organization for leaders in world of visual communication, boasting one of the most concentrated groups of creative talent in the world. Ghostly International “Of Art and Artifice” is set to be the first featured in it’s “CRE8” series of music and art showcases. Between September 13-16, the Art Directors Club in New York will host four days of artist talks, exhibits, and musical performances by the Ghostly International roster. Highly recommended if you’re going to be in the city that weekend.
Here’s some more background on the show.
