BEG BORROW STEAL Opens Thursday 21 October, 6-9pm On exhibition until 30 October  

‘Beg, Borrow, Steal’ is a photographic exploration of D.I.Y. skateboarding featuring the people, places and the creations of those skateboarders behind real ‘do-it-yourself’ skateboarding. Often synonymous with anarchic ideology – an affront to government, authority and corporate endorsement (we’ll tolerate skateboarding as long as we can make money from you) – D.I.Y. skateboarding has promoted autonomy and self-sustainability through the creative re-use and repurposing of the built environment and the refuse of society.

Disused spaces – old factories, vacant lots, abandoned high-schools – are transformed anew into spaces of true creative energy. The dedicated transform their lounge rooms, kitchens and bedrooms into spaces of skateboarding. Why? To make, to create, to explore, to see what’s possible and because we can… and damn is it fun.  

Beg, Borrow, Steal is dedicated to the memory of Daniel Lynch and Damien Scullin – and to all skaters loved and lost – gone but not forgotten.
