NEWS: Pusha T Heads the #TLKS by adidas Originals Event During Art Basel 2016

adidas Originals recently presented its first ever #TLKS event in hopes to usher a platform of creative discussion spotlighting inspiring individuals from all kinds of expressive backgrounds. The showcase was held this past Thursday night as part of Art Basel 2016 and featured influential guest speakers such as rapper Pusha T, artist Ben Jones and model/activist Adwoa Aboah. The panel was moderated by Spencer Bailey, the editor-in-chief of Surface Magazine, who posed critical questions on the topics of finding originality, seeking solutions for worldwide affairs as well as reflecting upon the 1990s to pay homage to the EQT—2017 will mark the performance line’s 25th anniversary.

Coinciding with the “open-source talk series” is Jones’ three-part visual narrative installation that was set against the dilapidated and graffiti-ridden Miami Marine Stadium. The immersive piece utilized a slew of computer graphics originating from the 1990s spanning video and desktop animation. Not to mention, King Push surprised attendees with an explosive music performance on a floating stage in the waters of the Virginia Key.
