Adam Caldwell – Anton Chigur

SPOKE NYC is pleased to present O Coen, Where Art Thou? a tribute art show by over fifty artists from around the world celebrating the films of American filmmakers, Joel and Ethan Coen. Drawing inspiration from the duo’s classic films such as Raising Arizona, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Inside Llewyn Davis, The Big Lebowski and No Country For Old Men, the exhibition is comprised of a diverse array of painting,
sculpture, and limited edition prints, with each artist offering their interpretation of iconic characters in the Coen Brothers films.

The legendary filmmakers unique oeuvre spans decades and genres, and is lauded by audiences and critics alike. The sibling duo is among the most original voices in the modern cinema, their highly distinctive work frequently boasts deadpan comedy, dread existentialism and socio-religious moral wrangling. The brothers write, direct and produce their films jointly. Whether it be the story of a slacker bowler in Los Angeles or a pregnant cop in Minnesota, every Coen film is memorable for its cast of eccentric characters and chaotic plot-lines. They have been nominated for thirteen Academy Awards together and are widely regarded amongst the greatest filmmakers of all time.
