Alex Olson: Skating and Curating
"Do you think this would look good in the gallery?" Alex Olson scopes a potential gallery piece. Kickflip.
Not only is Alex Olson unique in that he is the first son of a former pro skateboarder (Steve Olson) to go pro himself or in his style-oriented, flowing approach to skateboarding, but he just curated a show at the Quicksilver/Autumn pop-up shop/gallery. Noah Johnson caught up with him to learn more about the show, how it came about and Alex's current take on skating. See it here.
