SEPARATIONS ANXIETY – Printmaking at Space 1026

Printmaking at Space 1026
March 5th – 27th, 2010
Opening Reception: Friday, February 5th, 7 – 10pm
Space 1026
1026 Arch St. 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA

Separations Anxiety, Printmaking At Space 1026 presents the diverse range of prints and printed materials made by the 25+ members of our Philadelphia collective. Fundamental to our creative process, this exhibition exposes our printmaking methods (and madness) presenting finished prints alongside the materials used to make them. Hand cut rubilith, whiteout drawings, photocopies, hand drawn ink positives, and even relief printed acetate; if it is out there, 1026ers have tried it. All this plus test prints, and the of course, the much coveted SUPER RARES. Freaking awesome! Oh and zines, heck yeah. If it’s print related, we’ll be showing it.

As a collective, Space 1026′s installations have ranged from massive multi-story constructions covered in printed works to an elegant geodesic dome. Members have also shown their work individually around the globe. Come see Space 1026′s prints in their natural, free-range habitat. Recently, Space 1026 designed an installation that transformed the gallery spaces of The Print Center into a reading room for Philagrafika 2010, now come see where it all began.

Space 1026 was founded over a decade ago by a handful of artists and tricksters who organize rowdy public events and outrageous installations at their building and at other institutions. At the heart of Space 1026 is a communal screen-printing workshop and gallery space for monthly exhibitions by local and international artists.
