Unveiling Twist & Shout


On Friday 12 July around 16:00 PM, Antoinette Laan, alderman for sports, recreation, art and culture, will officially unveil Twist & Shout and hand it over to the residents of the city with a ceremonial act.

The designer Martand Khosla is present. Then everyone is cordially invited to a demo and public skateboarding lesson, which we offer in collaboration with a number of skateboarders and skateboard teachers. Twist & Shout is a very nice addition to the existing skating facilities in Rotterdam, but also to the Rotterdam art collection in public space. Showroom MAMA is very proud that the realization - with combined efforts - has been successful.

Twist & Shout by Martand Khosla from New Delhi is the winning design of the international ideas competition Reclaiming the Street organized by Showroom MAMA in 2010. Twist & Shout has been selected from more than 85 submitted designs by students, artists, skateboarders and designers from all over the world with an affinity for skateboarding culture.

Twist & Shout was made possible in part thanks to a contribution from the Centrum Beeldende Kunst.
