About the show:
“Together Nonlinear” is a showcase of print ephemera, drawings, and painted skateboard decks celebrating queer identities in art and skateboarding. Works shown will be from some of Unity Skateboarding’s zine workshops and queer skateboarding sessions.
Unity Skateboarding is a queer, trans, femme, and person of color centered skateboard collective that originally started in Oakland, CA. The co-founders of Unity are artist Jeffrey Cheung and Gabriel Ramirez, who run Unity Press out of Wolfman Book Store. They use their artistic expression and platforms to host queer skate nights globally and in their home of Oakland, CA. Jeffrey is a trained artist who hand-paints decks that are often given to queer and trans community members at sliding scale rates. Their mission is to make skateboarding and quality printing accessible to the communities they belong too as well as to build community with like-minded folks and accomplices. The gallery exhibit would include acrylics on canvas, screen prints and risograph prints, hand-painted decks, and zines.
June 2, 5-8 Queer Skate night hosted at Parasite Park along with a live performance by a local band with similar values as the skate collective.
