Over the weekend Ruttkowski;68 opened its new gallery in Paris at 8 Rue Charlot in the Marais district. To ring in the occasion, the space hosted a large group exhibition featuring works by a carefully-curated selection of artists touching upon fashion, music, and urban culture.

Highlighting the showcase is a life-size Air Jordan 1 coffin in the iconic Bred colorway by Ghana-based coffin artist Paa Joe. Joe also recently constructed a massive Air Max 95 variation, which you can see below.

Additional artists participating include Andy Kassier, Antwan Horfee, Asger Carlsen & Roger Ballen, Conny Maier, C.O. Paeffgen, Daniel Weissbach, Devin Troy Strother, Fabian Treiber, Filippo Minelli, Frédéric Platéus, Henrik Vibskov, Jårg Geismar, Jenny Brosinski, Joakim Ojanen, Lars Eidinger, Mark Jenkins, Pablo Tomek, Philip Emde, Ricardo Passaporte, Stefan Marx, Stefan Strumbel, and Wermke / Leinkauf.
