Session: The Bowl, Deitch Projects Poster (2002)
The exhibition/event poster for the Deitch Projects exhibition "Session: The Bowl" that took place from December 14, 2002 to February 15, 2003 at 18 Wooster Street in New York. The central element was a giant, empty wooden swimming-pool sculpture and skateboard bowl created by Simparch and placed in the middle of the gallery. The viewer approached the skate bowl sculpture from the underside, and a stairway led to the upper level. An exhibition of new painting, drawing, photography, and video by 33 artists associated with skateboard and street culture was also presented. Impromptu skate demos occured throughout the two-month exhibit.
