4 Days of Sound, Art, and Inspiration.
The Ghostly universe has been steadily expanding since its humble beginnings in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1999.
The Art Directors Club begins its CRE8 series of music and art focusing on Ghostly International, a unique culture identity that 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, Lusine and School of Seven Bells.
The Ghostly aesthetic and its accompanying ethos has always sought to cast off the restrictions of genre and form. An assertion that creativity, in its apolitical nature, is an act worth striving to achieve. Unconcerned with classification, Ghostly highlights the act of making in and of itself, no matter the medium.
In 2010, Ghostly launched Ghostly International Editions, a "label" of artwork and artists that has grown into a collective of some of North America’s best designers and artists.
Of Art and Artifice is not a retrospective—it is a comprehensive state of the union, a peek into what’s next after 13 years of creativity from Ghostly International, creating an essential selection of work from the Ghostly family into a never-before-seen collection.
