Moleskine Detour New York is an exhibition showcasing 75 notebooks that have been transformed into stunning artworks by 75 designers, architects, and creative thinkers including Francis Kéré, Paula Scher, Michael Graves, William Kentridge, MC Yan, Sigur Rós, Joana Vasconcelos, and Cristina Lei Rodriguez. Each creator generously donated their notebook to the Moleskine Foundation in support of its mission of creativity for social change. Founded in 2006, The Moleskine Foundation collection contains over 1,300 Moleskine notebooks that have been decorated, hacked, sculpted, and reconstructed into artwork.
The exhibition also includes notebooks by 18- to 27-year-olds from Africa, Europe, and the United States who have participated in the Moleskine Foundation’s AtWork program, as well as New York-based artists from the Lower East Side’s Harman Projects.
Taking place at One World Observatory atop One World Trade Center, a symbol of rebirth in the world’s creative capital, the exhibition celebrates how blank pages can become a work of art in themselves, providing moments of both inspiration and introspection for the viewer.
This marks the first time that One World Observatory has hosted an art exhibition.
