Bring your board and join us for a pop-up skate park on JANM’s plaza to celebrate the special edition skateboard deck designed by the artist in collaboration with The Berrics.
Once an “off-brand skateboard kid,” Kaino’s experiences on the board helped shape his art career and worldview. Combining the artist’s childhood love for skateboarding with the influential imagery of Katsuhiro Otomo’s animated film Akira, this one-of-a-kind piece similarly combines Kaino’s past experience with the present and future, as explored in the exhibition, Glenn Kaino: Aki’s Market.
Skateboards, roller skates, and inline skates are welcome but will not be provided on site. All skaters will be required to sign a waiver before entering the park. If a minor (under 18) is the participant, the minor’s guardian must sign on the minor’s behalf. If there is rain, the event will be postponed to a later date.
Please note that museum admission to see Glenn Kaino: Aki’s Market must be purchased separately.
