For our first collaboration with Jenny Holzer, we produced a very limited edition to honor the lives lost, the lives still fighting, and the lives dedicated to raising awareness against AIDS.
Jenny Holzer’s contribution to the NYC AIDS Memorial resonates with Walt Whitman’s ‘Song of Myself’. The landmark is now a stark reminder of the AIDS epidemic that once ravaged New York back in the 80s, claiming the lives of over 100,000 victims.
This second collaboration features the artist’s take on the politics that revolve around the Trump presidency. Addressing the Senate trial, Holzer, whose medium is text, has displayed “IMPEACH” on electronic sign trucks for the past year.
In partnership with Holzer, The Skateroom will release a limited marble edition of 25 boards, and a limited wood edition of 500 on February 6th.
Through the sales of this latest joint effort, The Skateroom will apply its fundraising model to provide money to support social skateboarding projects dedicated to empowering at-risk youth. The artist has waived her royalties to support two U.S. based non-profits: Change the Ref and Vote.org.
