Skateboarding meets contemporary art in Out of Control

WHEN PATRIK ANDERSSON began working on Out of Control: The Concrete Art of Skateboarding, a major new exhibition at Audain Art Museum, he was clear on what wouldn’t be part of the show. Flips and shove-it tricks are not the focus, and there’s no tribute to legend Tony Hawk.

“I tried very hard—and it was quite difficult—not to make a predictable show about famous skateboarders or famous artists associated with skateboarding,” Andersson tells Stir by phone. “A conscious decision was that I’ve done my best not to make any mention of skateboarding as a sport. I don’t think it’s a sport. It’s become a sport. We can’t argue that; it’s in the Olympics. But this exhibition is not looking at that.”
