Skateboard culture has always had a notably grim side. Maybe it stems from skateboarding’s breakneck speeds and physics-defying acrobatics. Or perhaps it’s a result of the general apathetic attitude toward bodily harm it takes to get into the sport in the first place. Whatever the reason, skate culture has always been imbued with a sense of the macabre and there’s no better signpost than the countless skate decks that revel in broken bones, gore, guts, and plenty of skulls. This celebration of destruction is the center of Light Grey Art Lab’s October exhibition, Skate or Die.
