Very excited to be showing alongside a group of truly talented artists in this show at the Ace Hotel, NY, of the course of the month of March, 2017. The show opened to the public last weekend and will close March 26th, with a closing party on March 23.

Here’s a description of the show from the Ace Hotel’s Website:

GALLERY: NO TREND

SATURDAY MAR 04 β€” SUNDAY MAR 26
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC – GALLERY, NEW YORK

The birth of modern American skateboarding occurred sometime in the 1940s or 50s with surfers looking for ways to ride the pavement. Although no one can confirm who first thought to strap wheels to a crate, we can all agree that skaters have taken that simple deck and created a phenomenally attractive subculture that was, for better or worse, ripe for capitalization. But somehow, and despite decades of either exploitative or collaborative commercialization, skateboarding has always remained true to the skater, loyal to the bone to those that skate for the pure love and obsession of it.

Skaters have always expressed themselves as they see fit. They have an ineffable knack for practice and perhaps that drive β€” along with an irreverent attitude toward authority and a clear sense-of-self β€” allows them to move between the asphalt and the studio (or to even erase the distinction between skating and art) with such grace and aplomb.

NO TREND, curated by Anthony Pappalardo, looks to some exceptionally talented skaters whose fine-art practices define their real relationship to skateboarding, one where the work speaks for itself and noone else. Works by Cole Giordano, Pep Kim, Jonathan Mehring, Lou Sarowsky, Winston Tseng, Tyrrell Winston and Allen Ying.
