Shred Sled Symposium
An Exhibition of Skateboard Graphics
Curated by Aaron Rose
Thread Waxing Space
May 11 - June 15

The show has everything of a quite hip event. The walls of the exhibition place are painted in different colors. It gives you the impression some fashion designers could use this palette for a new collection for fall 97. But not only the colors, also the graphics and structures on the skateboards are a huge source for designing fabrics and trendy looking surfaces.

The opening evening featured a fashion show, too, absolutely fabulous in it's charming unprofessional catwalk style. Five outfits by five designers ( Built by Wendy, Pixie Yates, Gigi Goo, Cake, & Nymph) were presented to an unusual young and fancy crowd. Something you are missing in the most art exhibitions. Beside that, it's just fun to fall in love with all the creativity and energy you can see there, in these paintings and drawings on an unusual format.
