About the author
Half-tourist and half-journalist, I am a full-time hot chocolate drinker who never leaves her camera. Always on the lookout, from classical music to rap, to the arts or good spots to visit, I could also feed myself with history and culture of all kinds.

What do you know about skateboarding? Never enough! That’s what the online platform to promote skate culture, Skateism, wants you to know, through a week-long exhibition with film showings, live performances… and late night parties.

Skateism has just arrived in Amsterdam and they have already planned something big. They’ll present an art exhibition, Ta Panta Rei (Greek for ‘Everything flows’), featuring works from many skaters or skate observers, both local or European, upcoming or established.

New way to look at skateboarding

Promoting skate culture, you’ll be guided through photos, fine art, prints and sculptures, into another reality. Skateboarding as you’ve never seen before, through others’ eyes. Among them is French Red, filmmaker and photographer for Element, whose fascination for skateboarding led him to travel. That’s how he discovered that there were other realities, and how to show his through the shapes of the cities that inspired him. But there are local artists as well.

The pop-up skate art exhibition is opening on March 4 with Spirit Quest by Colin Read. In this first film you’ll discover a new way to look at skateboarding. Mainly shot on the streets of New York at night, it looks like a race between skaters and the camera, but the two movements finally go along with each other.

The exhibition is opening and closing at nighttime, so the SkateCafe is throwing two huge parties with DJs on March 4 and 11. A friendly moment to share with everyone around the skate culture, in a freshly-opened space -including a mini ramp!
