On 18 June La Gaite Lyrique gallery in Paris will be kicking off their special month-long series of skateboard inspired events. From the look of things, the jam-packed schedule will cover all the artistic spheres that skateboarding (or skateboarders) have inspired - from music to graphics and fashion to cinema - giving a "voice to those who have forged themselves uncommon lives after being touched by the skateboard."
Throughout the event there will be music performances from the likes of Dinosaur JR, skateboarder/musician Ray Barbee, Busy P, The Goat (band members include pro skateboarders Andrew Reynolds, Spanky and Brian Herman) and many, many more… Pierre Senizergues, founder of shoe company Etnies, will also be curating a special exhibition which will address the future of the sport and will no doubt include some incredible work.
For the full schedule of events (running through to 7 August, 2011), including film screenings and talks, head of to the La Gaite Lyrique website.
