At Light Grey Art Lab, gallery shows are often collaborative group projects. The four-member team develops a show concept, then invites designers from around the world to submit their artistic interpretations. 

Their upcoming show, Skate or Die, is inspired by the dark aesthetic of the skateboard subculture. Designs from 60 artists will be displayed on Canadian Maple skateboard decks.
