Description

In 2016, JR was invited to the Musée du Louvre. For the event, the artist announced he would make the museum’s famous glass Pyramid disappear. To achieve the feat, JR completely covered the structure with historical photographs pre-dating its construction. What resulted was a surprising anamorphosis: the museum’s forgotten former entrance bursting forth into the present and reclaiming its former glory. In doing so, JR revives the past and evokes the polemic that once surrounded the Pyramid’s construction – inadvertently, we are left to wonder whether we attach meaning to the wrong things, or simply are too quick to forget.

Buying Guide

“Printed Signature on the deck” refers to the printed signature of the artist included on the top-print. Most decks feature this printed signature, though some specified editions can also feature a hand signed artist signature

Our Social Impact is at the core of who we are and what we stand for. We donate up to 30% of every sale to an NGO dedicated to moving humanity forward. The % given to support social projects depends on various factors among which the edition size, the price, the retailer’s margin, the royalites paid to the artists and foundations. Since the start of our project, we’ve given more than $500,000+ to support social projects empowering at-risk youth around the world.

These editions of artwork are intended for decorative purposes. While you could definitely skate on them if you wanted to, we provide you with one wall mount per deck to hang them on your wall, just like a painting.

We provide you with a set of instructions that tells you everything you need to know to hang your board up. Our team is also always ready to help if you have any additional questions.

Direct exposure to sunlight might result in discoloration and damage to your editions. To avoid this, we strongly suggest hanging your art-decks away from direct natural light.

We allow a 14-day period following delivery to process all exchange and return requests. Once your request is received, you will receive an e-mail indicating the next steps.

The Skateroom makes art accessible to all by delivering worldwide. Shipping estimates are always provided in our webstore once you enter your delivery address. We typically process and ship your order within 48 hours. From there, the delivery takes 3-5 business days to reach you. A tracking number is also provided to you to facilitate the process.
