Skateboarders vs Minimalism Performance and Block Party

Featuring Skateboarders vs Minimalism by Shaun Gladwell

FREE EVENT
June 24 , 2017

The Drake hosts a block party celebrating the intersection of high art and street culture, led by UK-based Australian artist Shaun Gladwell (former pro skater) with live performance of his critically acclaimed film Skateboarders VS Minimalism (Canadian premiere), where local and international skateboarders will creatively misuse replicas of sculptures by Donald Judd and Carl Andre. The event will open with a performance by Le Patin Libre on rollerblades and, in true block party spirit the day will also include DJ performances, food trucks, pop-ups from MOCA, Evolve Skate Camps and Drake General Store, and more. US pro skater Hilary Thompson will be there too in her first Canadian appearance!
