in a previous post we talked about goodhood's fancy new flagship store in shoreditch. still very much connected with what's happening in the street, owners jo sindle and kyle stewart have drawn inspiration from this year's edition of the london design festival and are pitching in with a cool event of their own. opening on sat - sep 13 at the store the art of skateboarding, an exhibition which pays homage to a street culture that has spawned a generation of creatives. so, what's the deal? a select group of leading artists and designers have been asked to create special skateboard designs which will all be exhibited at the store during the massive design event. mind you, a special late night event will be held wed - sep 17 [from 7pm] which will also include an auction of the specially crafted decks on display. participating artists include jake + dinos chapman, jiro bevis, french, ornamental conifer and will sweeney. location: goodhood, 151 curtain road [shoreditch].
