May 3 – 4, 2014 at Picture Farm Gallery, Brooklyn.
Hosted by Brooklyn friends Imaginary Surf Co and SMASH Productions, It Doesn’t NOT Work featured “surreal to sublime shapes by East Coast subterranean board builders.” A call for submissions proposed that “Function is purely subjective when fun is the ultimate goal.

Boards that are proven to NOT work!!”
