FauxAmi Exhibitions / SKATEBOARD MUSEUM Stuttgart
FauxAmi Exhibitions was founded in 2002 as an artist association organizing and curating art shows. In 2003 the corner stone was set for the Skateboard Museum Stuttgart. After a temporary exhibition called SKATEBOARDFEVER covering the whole skateboard culture and history the exhibition became permanent. The first and only Skateboard Museum in Europe.
FauxAmi Exhibitions has also created several touring exhibitions like SKATEBOARDFEVER, “THE MAGS WE READ”- the history of skateboard magazines, THE ART OF SKATEBOARDING and FREAKS! OF NATURE – the origin of skateboards. Based on an exhibition about Skateboard footwear and the world’s largest collection of skateboard shoes, FauxAmi released the book MADE FOR SKATE – THE ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF SKATEBOARD FOOTWEAR in 2009.
Other than publications, FauxAmi is writing several columns for skateboard magazines, developing iPhone/ iPad Applications, creating special exhibitions for trade shows next to heritage marketing and doing research for skateboard brands.
The Skateboard Museum’s integrated gallery space offers the possibility to exhibit all kinds of Skateboard related artists and their art: from photography to painting, from illustration to video, all mediums are welcome and appreciated with temporary special exhibitions. The space also serves as a platform for the more unknown but not less interesting artists.
