On-Street Exhibition
26 Sep 2019 - 6 Jan 2020

[SELFIE]

A free on-street trail highlighting areas of the city which are significant skate spots – places where near impossible tricks have been completed or where skate pioneers/celebrities have left their mark. These include The Pritchard Gap named after iconic skateboarder Matt Pritchard (‘Dirty Sanchez’/’Dirty Vegan’); The Battle of the Beige where skateboarders went head-to-head with corporate landowners; and the building of The Buszy, which developed over a unique threeyear consultation process with skateboarders, businesses, residents, the police and city architects.

The on-street exhibition runs from 26 September 2019 to 6 January 2020 in a series of underpasses along Midsummer Boulevard at: Marlborough Gate, Saxon Gate, Witan Gate, and Elder Gate.

See the city through skateboarders’ eyes! Download the map to go on a selfguided walk of the city’s skate spots, or join a guided walk led by the city’s skateboarders on Saturday 2 November or 9 November.

Starting with the radical punks in the early 1980s, through to the impact of US skate films and tours in the 1990s, and on to 2020 Olympic dreams, MK Skate captures the personal histories of the generations of skaters, both hobbyists and sponsored, who have grown up in the city. Their stories are shared through an exhibition of their personal collections featuring pro skateboards, stickers, 1970s polaroids, 1990s baggy jeans, VHS and cine film, zines, and a rare pair of trainers named after The Buszy.
