“Taking action from sport to art”: this is the concept behind the Action Gallery project, a temporary art gallery powered by Vans and AW LAB.
Movement and dynamism are the defining elements of both brands, meaning the gallery won’t be exhibiting classic art but more innovative and experimental pieces such as the SKATE ART MACHINE, a ramp that traces the movements of the skaters and transforms them into art, and the GIF ARTIST EXHIBIT, where a selection of international artists will exhibit work they have created with those famous moving images.
Action Gallery is a ‘living’ space, a playground where the spectator is involved in a dynamic experience that makes them more protagonist than observer.
