'Public Domain - Skateboard Culture' exhibits Hirst skateboards

Public Domaine: Skateboard Culture

18th June - 7th August 2011

A la Gaîté Lyrique, Paris

La Gaîté Lyrique invites skateboarding culture for its first major summer theme and presents Public domaine - Skateboard culture, from Saturday 18 June to Sunday 7 August, 2011. Other Criteria's skateboards will be on display from 1st July 2011 but will not be available to purchase at the exhibition, so if you are interested, join our mailing list for  information about the release of the skateboard decks.

With Public domaine - Skateboard culture, "skateboarding" expresses itself in full freedom through all of la Gaîté lyrique's spaces via the various artistic spheres that it influences: music, graphics, cinema, photography, fashion, video games... Public domaine – Skateboard culture gives voice to those who have forged themselves uncommon lives after being touched by the skateboard.

Under the direction of Jérôme Delormas - la Gaîté lyrique's director, Public domaine – Skateboard culture is the brainchild of Vincent Carry - artistic advisor to la Gaîté lyrique in collaboration with Pedro Winter and Morgan Bouvant - invited representatives, Yogi Proctor and Sébastien Carayol – consultants and Benoit Rousseau, music programmer. Public Domain, without the "e", is the name of one of the skateboarding videos produced by Stacy Peralta which helped revolutionize the aesthetics and image of skateboarding towards the end of the 1980s.

Public Domaine, with an "e", is the homage paid to an art form which has chosen a plank and four wheels as its medium of self-expression with which to reclaim the public domain and to reinterpret it with its twists and whorls on the asphalt. Because "skateboarding" is much more than just a sport, an activity, a hobby or a means of transport... Over the years, it has forged itself a rich, evolving aesthetic and transformed itself in the course of its encounters with artists - from designers to musicians - who have taken it as their traveling companion.
