Oakley in Residence, Sydney launched on Wednesday 4th November on 74 Commonwealth St, Surry Hills. It’s a creative community space and pop-up skate park which has been created to celebrate the creativity in skate and the new collaboration of skateboarding, inspired by the personal style and needs of Oakley athletes Sean Malto, Curren Caples and Eric Koston alongside world-renowned photographer Atiba Jefferson.
‘Destination Sydney’, is an exhibition curated by photographers Atiba Jefferson, Mike O’Meally and Andrew Peters, which honours the rich skateboarding history of Sydney. The photograph by Atiba Jefferson of Kenny Anderson ‘Melon’ at Bondi Beach skating the half pipe from 1999 was a highlight!
Oakley threw one fine event with Sean Malto, Curren Caples, Eric Koston and Atiba Jefferson present amongst some fine Australian produce Corbin Harris and Chris Lilley.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. Located at 74 Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills, the venue is open every week from Tuesday to Sunday, and offers a weekly schedule of workshops, exclusive exhibitions, interactive panel discussions, art installations, athlete meet ups, skate sessions, film screenings and more.
