5 Skateparks, 10 Artists’ Commissions, 5 Galleries

Julie Smith, The City Gallery’s Marketing Officer says:

Among the Living is a national touring project exploring the crossovers between art and skateboarding. It has been developed by independent artist/curators Mark Gubb and Clive Caswell.

Among the Living brings the worlds of art and skateboarding together in a national touring project. Ten artists have made a new work to be reproduced as the graphic on a skateboard. These commissions will be exhibited through a series of one day events in skateparks around the U.K., involving an amateur skate jam and demos by invited teams of skaters.

The winners from each jam will be invited to join the tour, skating on behalf of one of the commissioned artists, creating an inter-city/artist v artist skate competition. At two gallery venues there will be new commissions by Ross Sinclair (Chapter, Cardiff) and Juneau Projects (mima, Middlesbrough) taking influence from the project. Sinclair’s commission includes skateable elements inside the gallery.

Artists: Ross Sinclair, Juneau Projects, Bedwyr Williams, Gordon Dalton, Lucienne Cole, David Burrows, Craig Fisher, Kate Parrott, Mark Beasley and Stuart Bailey, Beagles and Ramsay.

A newspaper publication documenting all the events will be produced and distributed, free, through the galleries and skateparks. This will be an 88 Shades of Grey publication.
