The French and Vans 'Humour of Initiation' exhibition opened at the recently converted Fifty-Fifty gallery space a few weekends back, and to celebrate, Vans put on a weekend of local events, including an official exhibition opening party on the Saturday, and a skate session on the Sunday, which saw the unveiling and rinsing of a special obstacle designed by French.

Fellow appreciator of all things 'a bit dark', Alan Glass, went along to document the weekends carnage, which he has turned into an official Vans podcast that can be watched below. Press play now for interviews with French and Danny Wainwright, and skating from French, Habgood, Joxa and others at a selection of Bristolian parks!
