Lance Mountain x Matthew Barney In Detroit: Part One

YouTube Preview Image

In 2009, Juxtapoz Magazine celebrated its 15th Anniversary with a special exhibition and auction to benefit Power House Productions, and Detroit-based non-profit organization that was establishing a sustainable artist-in-residence program community-based arts programs in a previously foreclosed neighborhood.

In support of the Ride It park, another auction was held, this time focusing on skate decks designed by artists. Just as he had in the 2009 auction, acclaimed NYC-based artist Matthew Barney donated a piece of art to benefit the Ride It park. But this wasn’t any piece of art; it was a specially designed skate deck, fit with a chuck of graphite on the bottom, that would be part of Barney’s ongoing Drawing Restraint series.

This past Fall, with help from the Power House and Matthew Barney, Juxtapoz was able to bring skateboard legend and artist, Lance Mountain, to Detroit to be the first (and perhaps only) person to skate the Barney deck at the Ride It Sculpture Park.
