TOUR DE FORCE: As Lance Armstrong strives for a record eight Tour de France victories, the Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris is hosting “Stages,” an exhibition of leading artists including Richard Prince, Cai Guo-Qiang and Aaron Young, who’ve created works inspired by Armstrong to raise cancer awareness. Sponsored by Nike, the pieces will be revealed next Thursday, where a host of participating artists including Tom Sachs, Ed Ruscha and Shepard Fairey, plus Nike’s chief executive officer Mark Parker, are due to attend. The show will head to the U.S. this fall with proceeds going to the Lance Armstrong Foundation, Livestrong, established before the cyclist knew he would survive his own cancer. On his regularly updated Twitter feed, Armstrong said all the bikes he’s ridden this tour, customized by the likes of Marc Newson and Damien Hirst, are to be auctioned off for Livestrong. On seeing the Hirst bike, which he’ll use in a later stage, Armstrong tweeted he was “speechless.”
