The annual art auction allows us to continue the 15-year mission of Space 1026. At its core, Space 1026 is a member-run gallery and collective studio space located in Center City Philadelphia, PA. We play an important role in the Philadelphia art community serving as a collaborative and supportive venue for varied gallery programming focusing on emerging artists and exciting non-traditional projects. Space 1026 provides affordable studio space to its members and houses a communal silkscreen facility. In addition to supporting Space 1026 and our undertakings, the art auction provides an accessible way for new audiences to discover and own great art donated by our members and supporters.
Our members work in a wide variety of media – from printmaking to sculpture to video arts – and over the years, Space 1026 has been home to a great number of successful projects, including Comedy Dreamz, Zine of the Month, Holly Holly Hobby Hobby, Harborcoat Press, Best & Better, Never Nothing, Sweatheart, Free News Projects, Small Change Screenings, Cars Will Burn, Cantab Publishing and Megawords Magazine, among many others. We are grateful for the generous donations and enthusiastic crowds that continue to make our art auction successful year after year.
This past year, our monthly gallery exhibitions hosted curated group shows and solo exhibitions featuring works by international artists, as well as national and local artists such as: Jay Hardman, Tom Bubul, Michael Hall, Ryan Parker, Rob Sato, Ako Castuera, Ryohei Tanaka, Hawk Krall, Jake Henry, and Mothers News among others. Space 1026 continues to remain linked with the local art community as we hosted a group show Optical Fiber in conjunction with Fiber Philadelphia. We regularly host a diverse range of programs including comedy revues, art performances, film screenings and music shows.
All events are in conjunction with Space 1026′s Annual Art Auction’s Week of Events. Preview the artwork that will be up for auction on December 14th!
