Bikesploitation 3 Bike/Art/Film Festival
May 24th - 26th, 2013 at Crosstown Arts - Memphis, TN
Bikesploition is a one-of-a-kind festival that brings together film, music, and art from around the world to celebrates our love for bikes.
Bike films, bike art, music via bike, family activities, live demos, food, beverages, and SO MUCH MORE. If you love bicycles, you are bound to have a great time at Bikesloitation!
As a bicycle-lover and artist myself, I’ve been making and collaborating on tricked out bikes for sometime now. As the bicycle has risen in popularity, so have the numbers of people expressing their love the bike through custom creations, original bikes designs, polo wheel covers, bike sculptures, t-shirts, and more. It seemed only natural to celebrate this fusion of bicycles and art!”
- Christopher Reyes, Co-Founder, Bikesploitation
