European Custom Board Show 2020 (press communique)
Presse communique / Brussels, 15th May 2020
Les Halles Saint-Géry and Chalk Custom Board Project are proud to announce the third edition of the ‘European Custom Board Show’. The event is one of the most exclusive custom board art exhibitions in Europe. It will take place this summer (July and August 2020) in Les Halles Saint-Géry, downtown Brussels.
> What is the ‘European Custom Board Show’?
This event is organized this year in Brussels by Chalk Custom Board Project and Les Halles Saint-Géry. Our aim is to gather the most talented custom board artists from all over Europe, around a big collective exhibition, mixing custom boards, sculptures made of boards, innovative concepts created around the skate and surf world, photography, live music and much more. We plan to welcome more than 60 European artists and more than 150 art projects in total. There will be a special focus on Brussels, skating and its impact on people, urbanity, architecture, mobility, and art.
> Why such an event?
In 2017, we felt the need, as a collective, to go further and organize a regular event that would cover the whole Europe. We also thought that custom board artists were mostly creating astonishing art in their own studio, room… we decided to offer them a true opportunity to shine the spotlight on them.
> Who are the main organizers of the European Custom Board Show?
‘Chalk Custom Board Project’ and ‘Les Halles Saint-Géry’ are the main organizers. A team of 10 people are working daily on the event (budget, project management, communication with the artists, digital communication, web design & development…). Les Halles Saint-Géry is a multidisciplinary space right in the center of Brussels, dedicated to culture, heritage and people’s lifestyle.
