American professional cyclist, cancer survivor and seven-time Tour de France winner, Lance Armstrong and his foundation, LIVESTRONG, have teamed up with Nike, Trek and more than twenty renowned artists to present STAGES a world wide art exhibition, set to raise awareness against cancer.

The New York City edition of Stages, a massive artist-driven bike initiative will kick off on October 31st and run through November 21st, at the Deitch Projects Gallery.

STAGES premiered in Paris in July, 2009 at the Emmanuel Perrotin Arts gallery, to bring the creative Arts community together as well as to help fight the deadly disease.

The show featuring some the world’s most accomplished exclusive bike designs and promising international artists will showcase the work of Ed Ruscha, Cai-Guo Qiang, Richard Prince, Catherine Opie, KAWS, Eric White, José Parlá, Christopher Wool, Tom Sachs, Dzine, and Rosson Crow.
The artwork not only focused on the devastating disease, but on the subject of survivorship.

Armstrong may be retired, but his work and passion are far from defeat. While fighting testicular cancer in 1996 at the age of 25, the cyclist managed to return to the world of cycling and win top prizes both on and off the stage.

The final leg of the event will take place in Miami Beach at the Art Basel Gallery in December.
