Mix of art and skate at the MACBA Museum with the exhibition of the artist Lydia Ourahmane. Some skaters have had the privilege of skating inside the museum. Making a round on a bench placed inside and following it outside, using the curb at the top, the stairs, the gap or any part of the square.

A dream that has come true for few skaters, some of them legendary skaters in the square. For the first time in history, skaters José Cantarilla, Alex Amor, Lucero Enterrio, Celeste Romero, Joan Galceran, Gabry Meliani and Adriel Parmisano have skated inside the museum together with the filmer Blai Costa.

Skaters from all over the world have said goodbye to him through social networks, sharing some of his best moments with very emotional farewell messages. 

As Trasher Magazine has done through its website and Instagram account: James Hardy always cared how others were doing.

Today I wish I could call you one more time to check in buddy. I love you”, – Mike Sinclair.
