Celebrate the launch of Museum of Skateboarding – part 3 of the Power and Architecture exhibition programme – with an evening of music, drinks and pizza.
Museum of Skateboarding is a new commission by Calvert 22 Foundation that will explore the individual’s participation in the activation of public space with an installation by Russian artist Kirill Savchenkov.
The mixed media installation considers skateboarding not just as a form of exercise, but also as a visceral way to explore and reflect on the contemporary city space. The project studies the secret language of the sport, illustrating how certain architectural interventions or objects can be understood through skateboarding.
Exhibition open to the public:
11 Aug 2016 – 11 Sep 2016
Wed – Sun, 12pm – 6pm
