DIY: The History of Creative Culture in Skateboarding presents a survey of the artistic side of skate culture that goes way beyond deck art and into the adjacent realms of street art and photography, along with aspects of fashion, zine-making, design and a kind of crazy-inventor engineering and adaptive re-functionality in the use of architecture, such as empty pools transformed into painting pits and athletic courses. That's the spirit of the culture, and "do it yourself" is not only an emblematic creative impulse, it's something of a motto, celebrating the independence and resourcefulness you'd expect to find in such an amped-up world. "DIY" is curated and created by Jürgen Blümlein of FauxAmi Exhibitions and the Skateboard Museum (Berlin), Todd Huber of Skatelab and the Skateboarding Hall of Fame, and FACT. Reception: Sat., May 19, 7-10 p.m.
