      • The Harold Hunter Foundation and adidas Skateboarding will invite a small group of female, gender-fluid and non-binary skateboarders alongside male allies for a private skate session with a Live DJ. The skate park designed by Industrial Designer Jonathan Olivares consists of a series of pink concrete ledges and a long bleacher (constructed with Performance Space New York’s staging equipment). Founded as Performance Space 122 in 1980 from an explosion of radical self-expression amidst the intensifying American culture wars, Performance Space New York is the birthplace of contemporary performance as it is known today. This event takes a unique opportunity to promote unity through a celebration of skateboarding in the context of performance art, providing a different type of engagement than the other competition style events throughout the weekend.
