Skateboarding culture was in full force in the mid 1980s - just look at the cult films Thrashin', starring Josh Brolin and Gleaming the Cube, starring Christian Slater. Professional skateboarder Tony Hawk also makes an appearance in both of these American feature films.
This exhibition features the work of fifty Australian artists. Accompaning this event is a running series of 'Live Painting' Artist Workshops, organised by Just Another Agency. During these 'Board Artists-in-Residence' events, you can see artists turn the humble skateboard into a work of artwork. The Board exhibition Facebook profile follows these free events, which are held on a fortnightly basis.
