Carhartt WIP skateboarding and Galleria Continua release capsule collection, film and exhibition, marking the gallery’s new experimental skate space. Set to release in October 2020, Carhartt WIP skateboarding has collaborated with renowned international art institution Galleria Continua. The project is centred around the building of an experimental, outdoor skate space at the gallery’s location in Boissy-le-Châtel, an hour east of the French capital. The snake run was created by MBL architects and Bureau D. Apheceix, using a series of free-form, artisanal techniques that allow the
structure to blend in with its surrounding landscape. 

Over several visits, the run was skated by Carhartt WIP riders, who offered their own, unique interpretations of this concrete structure. The resulting images and film, shot by Maxime Verret and Romain Batard respectively, will be displayed at Galleria Continua under the title CONCRETE CATHEDRAL from October 18 onwards.

This will also be accompanied by the release of a capsule collection, consisting of three t-shirts and decks, which utilize 3D architectural renderings of the site. These products will be available from October 29 at select Carhartt WIP stores and 

In addition, CONCRETE CATHEDRAL will be marked by a glossy, large-scale publication that includes images from the project and an essay by the architect and writer Jack Self.
