About the exhibition
SKATE is a travelling exhibition on skateboarding culture, produced by the Rgion Museum of Kristianstad in collaboration with young skaters.
The exhibition showcases works based on personal stories from young skaters at Bryggeriets Gymnasium, a high school located in Malmö, and local skate associations from all over Sweden. They have portrayed their everyday lives and experiences using cameras and skateboards. Sound, film, photographs and text portray moments from a subculture that is constantly on the move.
The exhibition will travel and visit public spaces in eight Swedish cities. From Umeå up north to Malmö down south, starting in May 2019.
The exhibition fits into two shipping containers and includes digital screens, projectors, printed matter and skate objects.
With this exhibition the Region Museum of Kristianstad wants to highlight and explore a well-established yet controversial subculture which takes place in the city and breathes life to public spaces. The intention is to showcase the breadth of experiences and expressions in Swedish skateboarding culture today and let more people take part in it.
Design and production by Nils Lilja and Marcelo Rovira Torres, in collaboration with the Blekinge Institute of Technology and the Swedish National Heritage Board. With support from the Swedish Inheritance Fund.
About the project
The exhibition is part of the project Skateboardkulturen, from the Region Museum of Kristianstad in collaboration with Bryggeriets Gymnasium, the Blekinge Institute of Technology and local skate associations from all over the country. The project also includes Smörgåsboard Skate Film Festival and Pushing Boarders. The project is financed by the Swedish Inheritance Fund.
Skateboardkulturen’s point of departure is to highlight a growing subculture from various perspectives. The project has collected materials for a touring exhibition focusing on minorities and youth within skateboarding culture. In every aspect of the project the goal has been to work with and for skateboarding culture and to let young skateboarders tell their own story.
